I am playing with the taurus packaging.
on debian machine the package is built for each available python version (2.6 and 2.7)
and when it will be ready for the 3.x series.
so to optimize a bit the build time (Debian managed on it buildd machines 35000+ packages...)
I tryed to build the documentation only once with the standard sphinx-build command.
It seems that it works but in fact the api is not generated and there is also a few ERRORS etc...
do you think that it would be possible to build all the taurus documentation with the standard sphinx command.
