Proposal: Splitting docs from the software

Apart from the software, packages often include the documentation. That makes their build dependencies very complex as they need everything to build the SW + the documentation. Splitting SW from the docs on the source level would give us:
- Smaller buildroot for packages -> more flexibility in terms of using different versions - no conflicts with the docs deps
- Building the docs without the SW: Can we have a common docs buildroot? Can we build all docs and publish them online?

- More flexibility for modules thanks to smaller buildroots
- Less packages for "higher support" - because of less dependencies
- All documentation and man pages online
