Comment #8 on issue 1526 by address@hidden: Building only English docs

We heavily discourage in-tree builds; inexperienced contributors should always be doing out-of-tree builds in

would it be possible to add build targets so that one can do:
  cd build/
  make essay

and have it work?  or maybe something like
  make QUICK-DOCS="essay"
  make quick essay learning
or ...?

I'm not sufficiently familiar with make syntax to give realistic suggestions for the syntax. The bottom line is that we want it to be easy for windows users to type. (well, easy for anybody to type, but I'm using "windows users" as an example of somebody who's completely unfamiliar with make and software development in general)

For various reasons (including coincidence), approximately 90% of doc work in the past 3 years has been done by windows users. I'm fairly confidence that we'll have at least 50% being done by windows users in the 1-3 year timespan, so it makes sense to target this group with respect to the "ease of use" of the doc build system.
