It shouldn't, on a sane machine. It takes about several minutes.
Of course, you only need to rebuild the docs when you want to,
not after every CVS update.

I won't give you that option.
% ./admin/process-docs

There, now you learned how to do it yourself, whether you wanted
to or not.

It's several minutes. Please don't spread FUD.

Why can't you run that cronjob on your CVS updated copy every day
or so?

It's not hard. It's just that the only people who want to read docs about
CVS will need to have a checkout anyway, and those people can easily
run ./admin/process-docs.
This script was specifically written (and taken outside release-twisted)
so we can easily build docs ourself.
