Well... It was a split-project back then (in CVS even... :-)). I'm also not sure we want all those jar files and stuff in the main repo. Most people neither use nor need it.
I don't mind having the binaries in a separate place, so much as I mind having the text-based stuff there that's tightly coupled to the rest of the documentation and code. What we have right now is equivalent to putting your project's Makefile into a separate repository and then trying to make sure it works correctly for every branch at once.
Note that once the changes are finalized, you can run `build tools` and upload the package to dist/docs
Ah, so there's a dist package for people who can't check out docs-build? If we moved some files out of docs-build into httpd, would that affect them negatively?
To put it another way: if we were to move all the text files and scripts from the docs-build root directory into a docs/manual/build folder in httpd, and left the docs-build lib folder that has all the third-party dependencies and jars and stuff (so that you still had to sync that down from SVN), would there be any downsides compared to today?
