documenteer.sphinxconfig.utils.get_project_content_commit_date(root_dir='.', exclusions=None)

Content is considered any file with one of these extensions:

  • rst (README.rst and LICENSE.rst are excluded)

This function allows project infrastructure and configuration files to be updated without changing the timestamp.
