Re: Repository Layout - One Vs. Many

I would like to suggest that docs and non-code type stuff be kept in a
different repos. The reasoning is because you have 2 completely
different types of users accessing those different files.

A code developer will probably understand that if they touch something
they shouldn't, they will need to fix it. Someone doing documentation
may not understand this, and could accidentally screw up your code if
it's intertwined with the doc files. Not that they're less smart, they
just don't tend to think about things like that.
