It is comparatively trivial to publish them - but I haven't as of yet as fwiu there are still
a number of bugs dealing with material inaccuracies that means that adhering to the docs results
in an inability to get a working CS instance, or even an install.

Here are some of the issues:

Additionally there are a number of tasks still listed as not done (completion of the installation

Additionally as Chip pointed out, the installation instructions that are provided don't resemble
installation for anything other than the developer builds from Jenkins. Wido has agreed to
host RPM and DEB repos, but the project isn't providing anything other than a source release
- and nowhere in either of those is the installation method, which is what is documented
in the install guide
- so it's confusing at best - and not something that someone can currently follow.

That said - if you'll let me know when you consider the docs done, I'll be happy to publish
those (or any other committer can in my place as well)
