Is there a definite reason not to distribute linux-docs with Manjaro's kernels?

I do not know whether I am at the right place or not, however I would like to ask, if it is possible to add linux-docs to the repository. Is there any definite reason against it?

If I understand well by looking at Arch’s repository, it is generated from the kernel source and it depends on adding few line of code to the PKGBUILD of the kernels, which could solve some dependency issues.

Don’t tell anyone i suggested you this :upside_down_face:

sudo pacman -U

You can enjoy the documentation …
Arch linux provides one kernel on stable and a higher version in testing, so when there is a new kernel the docs version will change too. To install the docs from testing

sudo pacman -U

You might have to symlink /usr/lib/modules/5.17.8-arch1-1/build to /usr/lib/modules/5.15.38-2-MANJARO/build in order to work …

Manjaro provides multiple kernels, so not sure how that will be sorted out in the future, if will be available from our repository. It should be an independent/optional package nevertheless, for those that are into kernels.
