Ragel requires latex to build docs. It is completely insane to require that by default just to use Ragel as a build dependency. Could you please disable this option by default to improve users' experiences.
seems fixed. Could be closed.
I'm sorry to say but it is not fixed. Ragel still requires latex to be built from the sources.
