It contains the documentation of the currently-packaged Guix snapshot:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix package -A guix
guix    0.11.0  out     gnu/packages/package-management.scm:71:2
guix    0.11.0-1.4420   out     gnu/packages/package-management.scm:216:4
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

We update the snapshot once every few weeks.

Eventually ‘guix pull’ will be able to update; it doesn’t do
that currently, which is a problem as you noticed.

Try “make && make html”.

However, I think you should try ‘info’ again.  The interface is not any
weirder than that of a browser after all, see “info info”.  :-)
