    [edited after noting that the svn repo is no longer used]

    This should probably be looked at before the release just in case the automated documentation generation that populates the tarball at will fail as well (though it seems to have been ok for a at least 1 release with the bug in the code it seems).

    Looking at this, this seem to need to run manually after each release so maybe this was just not done. Doing this at Docker creation seems a bit dangerous since it will pick up the tarball from the last successful run on master at the time the container is re-created rather than from the last release.

    It doesn't build the ThornGuide at all, it builds the ThornDoc, which is a different beast. The ThornGuide is a single file containing all the documentation, from what I remember, and it seems totally impractical. The ThornDoc produces one PDF (or HTML) file for each thorn, which is much easier to deal with, especially for the website version of the documentation.

    As a result, the ThornGuide is never automatically tested.
