I'm trying to understand and even improve rosdoc_lite and have a question... let's take roscpp as an example.

Where is the landing page for generated from?

Back in the day we use to have manifest.xml files in every package that would do this, but looking at this does not exist.

I see that now a manifest.yaml is generated, such as here:

But how does the description get generated?

The landing page is a doxygen mainpage: see here

The manifest.yaml is an internal data storage generated by rosdoc/rosdoc_lite and then rendered by the wiki. It's aggregated from various sources, depending on the package type. The description comes from the package.xml for catkin packages like roscpp.
