Support referencing images across components/modules
Antora presently doesn't allow content in the
videos directory to be used across multiple modules or separate components:
This would be helpful in the following illustrative (hopefully non-controversial) use cases:
- Allowing referencing to common material (logos, branding etc.)
- Allowing a separation between documentation text and other artifacts (e.g. for git-lfs support) which might be large/heavy for a documentation repository. The docs indicate that for large files:
Instead, you should either host them in a binary repository such as Bintray or S3, or use git LFS (Large File Storage).
Plausibly a user might want to separate a binary repository from other documentation repositories but at present this is not possibly.
