You're welcome. The docs and tutorials will roll out slowly, but
they're roll out.

A couple questions:

1) Where can I find the s6/s6-rc project's preferred directories for
   everything? I'd prefer not to put anything directly off the root
   directory: Too many people would object.

2) Does there exist a block diagram of either s6, s6-rc, or both
   combined, and if so, where?
