allow installation of man and html doc from the man and html branches
This patch introduces a make target "quick-install-html" which installs the html documentation from the branch origin/html, without the need for asciidoc/xmlto. This is analogous to the existing "quick-install-doc" target for the man pages. We advertise these targets in the INSTALL file now. Signed-off-by: Michael J Gruber <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
