So would suggestions. As you know from Cocoon, it is difficult to
maintain documentation in separate repositories that get merged
to form the website, yet still work properly offline.

You have been solving some code issues using "svn:externals".
I wonder if that approach might help with documentation too.
I cannot see how, but maybe you can.

At both projects we have 3 separate sets of docs.
Cocoon has even more, with a set for each block.

"site" docs i.e. top-level.
"docs" related to the current release version.
"docs/dev" related to the current development version.
