Together with the decision for .8 vs. .1, I suggest to adapt the
sbin/ vs. bin/ installation directories. Traditionally, these user
programs were installed in sbin/ too; but IMO binaries for general
interest should go to bin/ (and thus get their man page in man1/)
and server related things should go to sbin/ (and get their man
pages provided in man8/).

Just my $.02,
