Hello,

I installed notmuch via Homebrew and didn't get manual page. It looks
like python-sphinx is required to produce the manual page. My question
is: can you distribute the manual page directly in the tarball? so we
don't have to install python-sphinx.

Hi Chunyang;

I made a note of your feature request at

  http://nmbug.notmuchmail.org/status/

No promises, but maybe somebody will work on it. It might be a bit
easier to supply a seperate tarball of generated docs, I'm not sure.

I'm not sure it helps your specific (old) request, but the documentation
for the current version, which is textually identical to the man pages,
is available online at

   https://notmuchmail.org/doc/latest/

I'm still a leary of making the source tarball diverge further from the
git repo (or committing generated files), but having a seperate docs
tarball generated as part of the release process seems like it might be
OK.
