All generated documentation files go into a "doc" subdirectory, so
ignoring a "doc" directory is probably the right choice for

Various Racket packages should probably include "doc" in ".gitignore".
The omission hasn't created problems, because the packages are
typically installed in installation scope, and documentation is
rendered to the installation's "doc" directory in that case.
