As a data point for where we stand in ensuring our packages are
producing documentation, I have some scripts which build all recipes
(using the output of bitbake -s, not world), and then check that a -doc
package is generated which is populated with files.

A summary of the results using yesterday's master are as follows:

591 recipes in total
308 recipes are building documentation
283 recipes are not building documentation

31 recipes did not build (and are counted as not building documentation

The lists of recipes are attached to this email. We'd like to improve
the percentage of recipes that produce documentation (separated into
-doc packages, of course) for our next major release in October.

Our userspace recipe maintainers should look into setting aside some
time to know which of their recipes are in the "not building
documentation" list and work to improve them. A lot of this is likely to
be low-hanging fruit.
I see "linux-*" in the list. What sort of documentation are we looking
for? The linux-image* packages in Ubuntu, for example, include a
changelog and a copyright.
