Yes, when you install HTML help locally.


But they are not needed in the repository, as they are entirely generated

>> /docs/html/*.xml

The current script files regenerate the XML files entirely. They have
version number (commit SHA) and date information.So they will always be
different than the repo version.

They should be removed after the HTML help is archived. I  left
them laying around to check out the content. But in reality, they can be
deleted. Adding them to .gitignore was a precaution.

>> Can I add these? Or, should someone else do that?

> Yes, you can. .gitignore already contains entries for /docs/chm directory.

Thank you.
