I didn't wait until September to do it, this year!
2019-10-16config: support "inboxdir" in addition to "mainrepo"
"mainrepo" ws a bad name and artifact from the early days when I intended for there to be a "spamrepo" (now just the ENV{PI_EMERGENCY} Maildir). With v2, "mainrepo" can be especially confusing, since v2 needs at least two git repositories (epoch + all.git) to function and we shouldn't confuse users by having them point to a git repository for v2. Much of our documentation already references "INBOX_DIR" for command-line arguments, so use "inboxdir" as the git-config(1)-friendly variant for that. "mainrepo" remains supported indefinitely for compatibility. Users may need to revert to old versions, or may be referring to old documentation and must not be forced to change config files to account for this change. So if you're using "mainrepo" today, I do NOT recommend changing it right away because other bugs can lurk. Link: https://public-inbox.org/meta/874l0ice8v.fsf@alyssa.is/
2019-10-10doc: explain publicinbox.<name>.watchheader
It wasn't clear to me exactly what this does -- in particular, what happens if it isn't specified? Does it support multiple values? A very brief explanation can answer both of these questions without making somebody look at the code.

2016-09-08doc: document PERL_INLINE_DIRECTORY usage
For now, we will document this since it allows better performance without the burden of extensions. Perhaps one day far in the future Perl can natively support vfork(2) AND that version of Perl will be widely available, but I suspect that day is at least a decade away, if not two: https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=128227
2016-09-07doc: new docs for user-level commands
Hopefully more folks can download and run public-inbox, nowadays.
