I noticed the hgpovray has a section on the wiki, and I thought that
would be neat for qtpovray. I should at least port it to wiki foo
because, reasons.

But I like distributing the html with the app.

So, my question is, how do y'all manage the multiple editions of your
docs?  IIRC, the wiki is now the master and you port it to html?  How?

Thanks.

On github, it's MD, which get served as HTML. (but the MD of github &
bitbucket are different, in regard to hierarchy and links, and TOC handling)

hgpovray's doc based on 3.7 was in github & bitbucket. But it is
cumbersome to edit: it's its own repository, and to see it, I have to
commit & push.
Of cource you can have MD editor with preview... but not always working
with github version of MD, or bitbucket version, so once done for a
page, it need to be done again because it does not work on that server.

And hgpovray 3.7 was also documented in a single big page in the wiki
(experiments before hgpovray ever existed), such big page being splitted
now as features are reported in hgpovray 3.8.

For hgpovray based on 3.8:
* I dropped bitbucket
* the doc is in the wiki, in hope someday it might be useful if some
feature get into official
* the github doc is not in the same repository, it's two clones to make,
one for source of app, one for doc, so maybe all that should be in
github doc section is a link to the wiki, but I have not cleaned yet.
(there is no branches for the doc repository, as far as I know, on
github, so documenting multiple branches can be challenging)
* there is more control in the wiki, and it's easier to edit & preview.

a php script pulls the pages from the wiki and converts it to html. that 
is used for nix/mac versions. win version requires post processing into chm

BTW, the post-processing script is available in the GitHub repo, in 
`tools/windows/htmlhelp`. Its input is produced by the same PHP script 
used for the Unix/Mac versions, but with some extra "fluff" pertaining 
the help index.

The index on Windows is all messed up. I wanted to help fix it, but 
never could find the time. Also I don't know what needs to be done.

The index is the most useful feature IMO.

Are you talking about the v3.7.0 help?
That's a known issue that has already been fixed.

I don't know. I am running 3.8 alpha right now which does not spawn a 
help window.

Having seen this asked in the message Digests, thought I would try to answer.
A 3.8 compatible help file was put at:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/tree/master/distribution/platform-specific/windows/Help

After downloading and placing into POV 3.7 Help folder, where you use 3.8,
right-click on the file in Explorer and go to Properties.

Under the General tab apply Unblock so it isn't ignored by Windows.
