Re: [Gimp-docs] - restarted automated builds for the 2.10 (master) branch and the web site itself

I had a look at the automated builds on recently and found
that the build for 2.10 content - that is

This has been corrected and the build is restarted, so the current
content from the gimp-help master branch should be present now.

It does not seem so...

online help instead of the 2.8 version, and 2.10 does have up-to-date

P.S. I've also run make dist manually and got a tarball out of this -
it's at

And this date seems to confirm my suspects:

gimp-help-2.10.0.tar.bz2               21-Jun-2019 20:55  178M

Any feedback to whether this tarball is suitable for distro and/or
installer packages would be helpful.

Here my 2 eurocents:

1) I compile it on a day-to-day basis and I do not see any problem. I keep a
compiled version here that i manually update from time to time... 
(I'm going to update it today)

I think that a CI, connected to the git repo would be a very good idea.
Github has that feature "build-in", if it is difficoult to do with gitlab
why not create a mirror on github just for this feature?

2) it would be useful also to compile _all_ languages tar balls...

3) the site should report clearly the compilation time _on the web pages_
