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.

Ideas
====

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?

Ciao.

if you install the "docs" package all other doc packages for your 
installed packages will be pulled in as well. Its a meta magic package :)

dont worry, happens to the best. If you want you can create an article 
in the Alpine Wiki about it so other users find it as well.

Yes, feature is there and works good. Funny thing is, it only needs to
be documented...
