The manual 'index' pages such as https://www.openssl.org/docs/man1.1.1/man1/, just do the equivalent of a directory listing, showing filename and meta-data. As suggested by Jakob Bohm on the openssl-users mailing list:

Consider at least including the one-line manpage summaries on the index
pages (the ones displayed by the apropos command on POSIX systems).

I like it a lot!! Although it does highlight how bad some of those synopsis texts are.
