This package provides the X Window System documentation that doesn't belong
in a more specific package.   It used to provide a lot of docs that did belong
in more specific packages, but that has largely been corrected in this release:

git diff --shortstat xorg-docs-1.5..xorg-docs-
 155 files changed, 27570 insertions(+), 112431 deletions(-)

The protocol specifications have mostly moved to the matching proto modules.
The library API references  have mostly moved to the matching lib modules.
The server internals docs  have mostly moved to the xorg-server module.

What's left has mostly (but not yet completely) been converted to Docbook XML,
from troff, SGML, and other formats.
