I was discussing the subject with Anne on IRC. Ceilometer doesn't have
any documentation stored in any external repository (yet). My point of
view is that it's better to systematically block patches not updating
the documentation, than to use DocImpact and cross fingers. That clearly
didn't work for us so far.

I'll try to check about how we can integrate with the existing
documentation provided by other core projects (such as API references
etc) while keeping the documentation in the repository.

Any hint appreciated obviously. :)
