Hi, I'm maintaining ipython in [community]. Right now, the PKGBUILD just removes all the docs. I can see the reasoning. The compressed package size grows nearly five-fold when they are included. I have several options. I can keep on stripping docs, I can include the docs in the ipython package, or I can generate a split package. I wrote a PKGBUILD that produces the split packages ipython and ipython-doc. I noticed that koffice from [extra] has its docs split. But nobody seems to be doing that for anything in [community]. So should I go ahead and commit my split PKGBUILD?
IMHO you should split it. Also, what prefix docs packages should have? Because I see more -docs and a lot of -doc (mainly texlive packages) in our repo.
