Shouldn't "docs" be in .gitattributes instead of .gitignore?
This way, the documentation would be available in the repository for everybody to read but it would not be downloaded when the package is required by another project.
It looks like that was added before you could put the github docs in ./docs. I'm not sure what it was excluding since everyone has their docs in a different branch.
Yes, @yuloh is correct. This should be removed from .gitignore and added to .gitattributes. To be honest I'm not sure why that was even in there to start.
Fix #87 | "docs" entry in .gitignore?
Remove docs directory out of .gitignore and locate it in .gitaatributes
