Description Erik Quaeghebeur 2020-07-08 21:18:52 UTC
If I want to have the docs for a specific installed version of dev-lang/python, I need to explicitly put that version in my world file. If not, only the latest version is installed, which is usually not the version most commonly used. (For example, now only the docs for 3.8.3 would be installed, while 3.7.8 is the one actually used by most packages.)

Therefore, my request is to add a ‘doc’ useflag to the dev-lang/python ebuilds. This use flag would trigger the corresponding version of dev-python/python-docs to be depended on. This would make managing the python docs much nicer for users, I think.

Reproducible: Always
