I don't have answers to your questions, but I wanted to say that I'm
excited to hear that someone is looking at documentation!

>    1. I noticed that the LLVM Docs currently use Sphinx 1.7.6, which is
>    an older version. (I believe 2.x is the latest version.) Is this
>    intentional? Updating to the latest version of Sphinx is probably low on my
>    list of priorities, but I was just curious if there was a specific reason
>    for keeping the docs at the older version.
>    1. Back in 2012, there was a commit that removed the sidebar from the
>    Docs page. Does anyone know/remember why this was done? I checked the
>    commit message but it’s fairly short and doesn’t provide much context.
