That's embarrassing.  Now I'm really lost about the current local
documentation status.  Sorry.  Last time I checked, it worked like the
way I described in the previous message.  Now it seems that things have
changed a little bit.

I couldn't find any reference to `doc-from-wiki' in the chicken-core
repo, so I supposed it's not being handled anymore.

It seems that chicken-install reports

| * Installing documentation files in
|   <prefix-here>/share/chicken/doc:
| Warning: file does not exist: "<eggname-here>.html"

for all the eggs which are supposed to provide documentation via

When retrieving eggs with the -r option to chicken-install, the html
file is not retrieved, so it seems that this feature is missing.

I supposed it would be automatically added to the egg.  But it seems it
is not.

I'm Ccing Felix, so maybe he can give us some pointers.  Felix: can you
give us some hints about the current status for eggs documentation? I
can update the docs accordingly.

Best wishes.
