Ticket #330 (new enhancement)
Support general documentation, not just haddock
|Reported by:||fons||Owned by:|
The generation and installation of Non-Haddock documentation (README and INSTALL files, LaTeX and Docbook tutorials/guides, Haskell examples using the package in question) is not currently taken in account by Cabal.
Making Cabal understand how to generate documentation for all those formats would probably be too ambitious, but it could be eased (e.g. letting the user provide Makefiles instead of creating custom hooks).
More importantly, the installation of documentation would be much easier with a new package property such as "doc-files" ("data-files" nor "extra-source-files" are semantically suitable).
