Description Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2012-02-21 13:02:30 UTC
Currently, if the user installs MonoTouch before they install Xcode's documentation, his documentation will be empty.

We should do a few things:

* Warn the user if his docs were not properly populated on MonoDevelop launch.

* If we detect that the docs were installed, we should ask the user to run the docfixer tool (requires root to update the results)

Basically, in pseudocode, it would go:

If (mtime (apple_docs) > mtime (monotouch_docs)) {
    TellUserDocsNeedToBeUpdated ();
    RunAsRoot (docfixer);

I don't think we need to check whether docfixer was run, if the user doesn't have Xcode at all that'll be handled by other checks.
