Making publishable docs part of the definition of done makes sense if
the software actually ships at the end of each sprint (which usually
means SaaS).

Otherwise I'd make the definition of done just that docs has a plan

took a developer maybe half a day to update a major open-source
component of the product but it took me three more to document the
insanely complex process of migrating existing installations to that
update. Same for QA.

Because docs is part of the definition of done, our developers factor reviews into the overall workload and story estimates (and if they donât, we kindly remind them).
