Default do we /really/ need to be shipping a 600~meg root-doc subpackage?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I'm seeing 15~ builds of this package in the past 2~ months. Each of
those builds cranks out a 600~ meg doc subpackage. Is this really
necessary? Does the docs change that much each release? Is it really
worth trundling that data all over the place instead of linking to a
website that has it?

Yeah. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=621812 for some
discussion of this.

IMHO, I would prefer also to see the subpackage dropped and pointing
people to a web site for further docs if possible.

Thats a fair bit of BW hit on every sync for my mirror, as well as lots
of disk space, etc. (I'd guess around 6GB or so with the base/updates
for 12/13/14/rawhide trees)
