[Patch] Include API documentation in install

The device the bug applies to:


When I was packaging libffado for Fedora, I wanted the build the API docs. However, this is not enabled by default. If I add a line to SConstruct to install the docs, all of the source documentation, not just for the library is generated. The patch strips those out and leaves the library API documentation only.

This might be improved by adding a scons option. But I leave this to developers.

  • summary changed from Include API documentation in install to [Patch] Include API documentation in install.

Given that there is only one user of libffado, namely jackd, probably no non-FFADO-dev would ever want to consult this API documentation. ;)

How do we want to proceed with this? The request sounds reasonable (even though, as Adi says, the only external user of libffado is jack), but an scons option would be the way to go I think. I'm no scons expert and would probably prefer to defer to those more experienced with scons for an implementation.

What is the general consensus here? Is it worth it?

  • status changed from new to closed.
  • resolution set to wontfix.

There has been no further comment on this in a month. I'm therefore assuming that no one feels that adding scons support to enable generation of only the API documentation is worth the effort. Please re-open this ticket if a reconsideration becomes necessary in light of future requirements.
