I don't know the answers re: pros/cons, I've never built anything with
readthedocs before.  But I was curious about how hard it is to setup so I
gave it a whirl.  The answer appears to be: not very hard at all.  I added
a two-line YAML config file but from the docs I read it seems like it was a
superfluous step.  Most of the work was clicking a handful of buttons on
github and readthedocs' websites.


Apologies for squatting on the project name, I thought the url would be
qualified by my username.  I'll see how I can get it changed to move out of
the way for the LLVM project.

I did a spot check of several pages and couldn't find obvious
missing/invalid parts of the docs.  This is just llvm and not clang nor any
other project, though.




Even search works:
