I have no stake in this, as I'm not remotely a groff developer.  But
as an interested observer, I'll note that developer documentation
might also have averted or more easily resolved some other issues that
have cropped up in recent bug reports:

 - documentation of the intent of the various "make" targets could

 - documentation of the intended scope of the test suite might have
resolved with less tension

Different parties may, of course, still disagree on what this
developer document should say, but framing those discussions as "what
should our procedure be?" seems more fruitful than what these threads
have been doing, which is different people coming to the table with
different assumptions about how things ought to work and using those
assumptions to judge the way things DO work.
