while playing with developer documentation I noticed that the source

when I configure with --enable-gtk-doc, then the shipped html/ files
are regenerated, thus it looks like a waste of space and bandwidth to
distribute them.

I do not know the history behind it, maybe I just overlooked
and it does make sense to distribute that too. That's why I raised it

It would be interesting to know whether anyone uses the html/ files
without --enable-gtk-doc these days, but I understand it's a hard

If I remember correctly, it’s so that the tarballs can be unpacked to
give documentation on without having to build
