devtools::document() is meant to be used within an R **package**, not 
for a standalone file.
Try devtools::create() first.

But at any rate, roxygen format seems to answer your question about how 
to describe the
specifications for a collection of functions written by different 
people.  Translation to .Rd
is not essential for this purpose.

Create a package, put it on github, and away you go.
