Hm, unfortunately they simply don't exist; it's not just a matter of missing in
the packaging.  If you'd like to submit man pages, I'll happily include them. 
:)  Otherwise I'm afraid this may be a fairly low priority.
Comment 2 Zdenek Kabelac 2007-11-15 15:15:53 EST
Sure I know they do not exists, but someone - maybe "maintainer of the package"
could eventually write them - and of course the priority is low - but would be
nice to provide them - for now I have to look into source files...
Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2007-11-15 15:27:28 EST
Yes, if I can find time, I would be willing to write them.  Thanks for pointing
out that they're missing...

This is work that needs to be done upstream; I may get it done some day but if I haven't had the time yet it's unlikely.

blkid now lives primarily in util-linux-ng, so perhaps new maintainership will offer new hope there.

Note that util-linux-ng version is partly documented at:
