[alpine-devel] Suggestion of a flag to always download -doc packages

I think many people always want to have documentation for every package.
Now it's cumbersome to do it, you have always to remember to install
the -doc package. And hunt down default packages to do it.

It would be nice to have a way to download all -doc.


1- apk upgrade -doc (checks all packages you have installed and
install all docs)
2- system config file that tells apk to always add -doc files when you
install the package. So if you do "apk add mpv" it's as if you did
"apk add mpv mpv-doc" automatically.

What do you think?
Any better idea?
