Context confusion.  I meant my changes to the main web site at 
https://www.ntpsec.org/ rather than the documentation shipped with the source

If you start at the top level page, https://docs.ntpsec.org/latest/,
there isn't any obvious quick way to get to any of the man pages.

Any problem with adding a link to the man pages section of the site map page 
to the Table of Contents section of the top level page?

Each section of the site-map ends with a site-map link.  That looks ugly to 
me.  Are those sections used anyplace else where it might make sense?

Some of the web versions of the man pages (but only some) include 
I think a separate site-map link (rather than hiding it as a man page) would 
be more appropriate.

Looks like the man pages should have a see-also section for the other ntp man 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
