# There are several steps needed to document new API command:
# 1. edit docgen/cmds-list and add the new command
# 2. ./configure --enable-generate-docs
# 3. make - you need to build the sources first, am afraid. The reason why you
# need to do this is that the tool kea-docgen depends on libkea-cc as it
# loads JSON files. This means that the libs need to be built first.
# 4. (optional) run: make templates
# This will go through the list of commands listed in cmds-list
# and will check if there are corresponding JSON files in api/name.json
# If the file is missing, a new JSON will be created using template.
# If you dislike this generator, you can always use api/_template.json
# and copy it over under the name of a new command.
# 5. Edit api/command-name.json. If the command is provided by the daemon
# out of its own (and not via hook), simply delete the hook entry.
# If you don't want to provide command syntax (cmd-syntax key),
# any comments about the syntax (cmd-comment key) or response syntax
# (resp-syntax) or any comment about response (resp-comment), simply
# remove those unused keys. The generator will attempt to gerate
# boilerplates for it.
# 6. Generate api.xml: make api
# 7. Rebuild User's Guide as usual: make guide
# This target will generate templates. There's no need to run it, unless
# new commands have been added or there are existing commands that are
# still not documented.
