I was wondering this. troff is for a lot more than man pages. i did
notice some man files were included, but there's no way to read them.
perhaps nroff would be more appropriate for stali, but i don't know of
a good minimal version. i could try writing one, but that would be a
lot more work than just packaging up other people's stuff.

What's the plan for stali? I was under the impression it would be a
"suckless distro" with dwm, surf, st... will X11 stuff be in a
different repository?

I tried to do something similar on my lan when I first heard of stali,
with a bunch of overlaid rsync repositories. I guess I'm mostly
curious about how i can help :)
