The instructions for publishing the web site say to run the "scripts/sync_format_docs.sh" which copies the top level "format" directory to the "_docs" directory under site.
Existing files in "_docs" have references to markdown files in the "_docs/format" directory. For example, the IPC.md contains:
However my top level format directory does not contain this IPC.md, so I get errors when running jekyll and I have had to create some dummy markdown files as a workaround.
I investigated this a bit and I think there is some prerequisite step that isn't documented that would cause Sphinx to run and generate docs?
