do we need to include a help manual for the server? my server is very simple... and my readme.txt file states how to start and stop it, so it seems a bit redundant to add a manual too

Hi Nate,
I would say that if your server runs in a GUI, then yes you should probably add some level of help files. If it only runs from a command shell and is not overly complicated then you can probably get by without it.
Hope this helps,
