Regenerate libalpm documentation

The documentation of libalpm is seriously outdated https://code.toofishes.net/pacman/doc/.
I think we should regenerate it.

Re: Regenerate libalpm documentation

Toofishes is retired from Arch Linux and no longer contributes to pacman. That site isn't an official hosting site.

Re: Regenerate libalpm documentation

Oh I see. I'll try to use doxygen to generate one instead.

Re: Regenerate libalpm documentation

I built it: https://pkgbuild.com/~eschwartz/pacman-docs/

This is just as unofficial as the other link, but, I am active these days and have vague intentions to keep it up to date. Actually, I thought I had it already, but it turns out it got lost during the server move and decommissioning of soyuz, so I had to go remember how the doxygen docs were created so I could rebuild it.

Re: Regenerate libalpm documentation

Eh.. I think your documentation is outdated too (for example the return type of alpm_db_search have been changed to alpm_list_t*). So I generated one anyways: https://docs.poscat.moe.

Re: Regenerate libalpm documentation

Wrong, my documentation is "too new", not "too old", since I built from git and it actually switched from alpm_list_t to int, and added a third parameter, alpm_list_t **ret
