If 'make xqdoc' only took a template and put content in some sections, then one could have implemented your suggestion and regenerate XHTML pages only for the modules that changed, or for all modules if the template has changed.
But this is not the case: most of the last changes were in xqdoc2xhtml module itself. So one can not know when the changes in xqdoc2xhtml module impact all XHTML generated documentation or only some pages. So the solution IMHO is to generate all XHTML pages for all modules as quick as possible. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zorba Coders, which is the registrant for Zorba. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/867125 Title: xqdoc does no dependency checking on inputs Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor: New Bug description: Every time you type "make doc" it re-does the whole process, even if none of the inputs has changed. Until this is corrected, it is not reasonable to make the documentation part of the normal build process.
