There was a short, and quite technical thread on godi-list:


Summarised, it could be made working that one can only install the
documentation part of the packages, without the packages as such, and
without fulfilling all the requirements. Then, it is quite easy to set
up a documentation server.

However, don't expect this happen soon, too few people are working on
GODI currently, and it hard to find time to add new packaging features.
The developers currently concentrate on the core, on new packages, and
on simplifying the packaging method. Btw, I'll report about the progress
of GODI the next days.
