The authoritative documentation is in the manual pages, but that's
more of a reference manual than an introduction. Introductory text and
assorted articles should either be in the project's wiki or linked
from it.

I have started collecting a list in the wiki, including the links you
provided and others. I have some plans that will make things simpler
and in turn will make the process of documentation easier, but details
on those will come once I have cut a new release (hopefully this
week). I'm also long overdue in writing a from-scratch tutorial, which
is much necessary.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to shoot questions at kyua-discuss@
