Building the Documentation

The documentation has been migrated from Sphinx-Doc to Antora, which is based on the AsciiDoc format. For the moment, it is not possible to generate the client documentation directly, as was previously the case, via a CMake command. Instead, the client documentation is built when the entire ownCloud documentation is built; (this is a combination of the administration, developer, and user, iOS, and Android manuals).

Please note: investigations are underway to see if it can be built both standalone and as as part of the larger documentation bundle. This README will be updated as more information is available.
