Building is controlled by file

Whenever Tom pushes to branch
master the documentation is built. Building for a tag must be triggered
manually on page

Currently Tom and I have administrator privileges for the project on

Requiring documentation

Many changes that we do are worth being documented:

* new or changed commands
* new boards
* API changes

The idea is that the maintainers should push the contributors to provide
documentation for relevant changes and possibly reject patch sets with
missing documentation.

Best regards
