Is there any advantage in doing that? There are several reasons to
_not_ do it:
Right now, fmt can only be built from official releases with the
documentation and it's happened more than once that the documentation was
missing from a release, so I would prefer to be able to build everything
from a clean checkout.
1. Faster build times.
That's true, but it's not a very big package, so I'm not too concerned.
2. Timestamps in docs tend to be one factor against reproducible
Isn't this a much bigger issue which solutions/implications beyond this
3. Dragging doc-building stacks into build reqs tends to explode the
package set required to build things.
Yes, it is a bit annoying, but once again it's not a very big package, so
I'm not too concerned.
