Thanks for this. I've just used your script on an Ubuntu box and it works well!

Hi Sean,
thanks for the hard work you spend on this.
I will upload the docs to readthedocs server.

Hello PySiders!

After a monumental struggle I was able to achieve the goal of building the PySide and Shiboken 1.2.1 API docs. Following in the footsteps of those before me, I've uploaded them to Github Pages<http://seanfisk.github.io/pyside-docs/> for use by the community. I've also created tarballs of the documentation available for download.

I've gathered the build process into a Bash script which is available in this Github repo<https://github.com/seanfisk/pyside-docs>. I've tested it on Mac OS X and CentOS, and it should work on most UNIX-like systems. If anyone wants to hack on it, let me know if you have questions.

During the build process, I stumbled upon a couple things:
*         qdoc3 from Qt 4.6 is needed to build API docs for PySide. This is because WebXML support was buggy in Qt 4.7 and dropped in Qt 4.8, and Shiboken uses this to generate the docs (thanks Roman Lacko). This is very annoying because parts of Qt 4.6 must be configured and built for qdoc3 to build correctly.
*         Shiboken has a documented --documentation-only flag but refuses to actually accept it. But Shiboken doesn't tell you which option was invalid, only that it was "called with the wrong arguments." This is annoying but seems like it has an easy fix.

The documentation build process is little convoluted in general. Some of these issues seem like they are out of the hands of PySide, though.

I hope these docs are able to help somebody out there!
