Well, I hadn't thought about the size of the files involved.
I looked at the files in a clean CVS sandbox and here's
what du says.
Hmm, so the doc directory is pretty big indeed.
The majority of it is the reference manual (doc/info).
The directories which you proposed to move, doc/tutorial and
doc/maximabook, are relatively small, so it doesn't seem like
there is much to gain by moving them. However, if the entire
doc directory were moved, that would make a substantial difference.
Should we consider moving doc itself? It would mess up the
build system, although I suppose we could figure it out. Thoughts?
