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.

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?
