At least, we should not ship apidocs for normally desktop program(e.g.
gedit) and not ship duplicate format docs(e.g. shipping html pdf doc
in the same package), personally I like html docs better than doc/pdf.
I suggest to disscuss extreme big auto-generated apidocs(size > 100M)
rpm case by case, it'll be better to determine whether shipping it or
not by FESCo. I think only popular libraries are worth to ship a big
-doc subpackage, other library packages should not enable generate big
doc subpackage by default, user who really need those docs can
generate -doc subpackage by running 'rpmbuild -bb with...'.
