I'm now thinking more to the documentation writer, which is not
necessarily a developer (most probably not). So anything we can do to
make her/his life easier, the better documentation will have, I guess.
I'm thinking of:
- fetching automatically manual sources
- emitting pull requests with a button, after manual production
- preview of the compiled manual
- automatically incorporating screenshots
- etc.
All the best.
