Ok, sorry. Let me explain that a little better.
We have 1 repository, which holds
/Manuals (What antora would call a "component")
/Manuals/Extrusion (What antora would call a "module")
/Automation (we would move that into another repository, actually, its another team...)
/Commons/Settings.adoc (what antora would call a "partial")
All of the manuals and automation docs (what antora would call "pages") include the //commons/settings.adoc to control their appearance and behaviour when we transfer them to pdf's using asciidoctor-pdf. Also we refer to the iconsdir alike.
Now, how do we get that to antor aso we can use the repository in BOTH ways, that is as source for pdf's and also as a website. Maybe I can't.
