Bug description

It seems as if too many modules were exported for the documentation of 4.03 of the new release. I am not sure it qualifies as a bug but it does not feel right to me.



gives an idea of the differences.

For example, I am not sure one wants Identifiable or Syntaxerr to be documented in libref.

If they indeed must be exported, it might be better to show these modules on another dedicated page.

I agree this looks like a bug, and Damien might want to fix this relatively soon.

This libref/index.html file contains not only the stdlib but also all the otherlibs, and (now) the compiler-libs.

Note that AFAIK it isn't part of the documentation proper, since it isn't linked from the main documentation.

At any rate, this change was introduced by @gasche in commit fd21a80 so I'll let you guys decide whether it's a bug and how to fix it.

The PR, #2017, split the index between compilerlibref/index.html (for compiler-libs) and libref/index.html. The reported issue shoud thus be fixed in the next release of the manual.
