DocSync.exe is DRIVING our developers crazy.
Please make it an option on Tools/Options/Xamarin to NOT run DocSync.exe.
No one cares about these docs and we don't want them or use them.
Me, too !
I have Visual Studio 2017 Version 15.2 (26430.6) and on the Mac Build Machine Xamarin.iOS 10.10.0.33 and still everytime I open a Xamarin Project the Xamarin iOS DocSync ist starting and never finishing !

Snapshot of Windows part of th eproblem
This function constantly make my Windows AND the Mac busy without use for us !
I am CONFIRMING this issue as it pertains to a pain point customers have and no current option to turn off if it is unneeded for Xamarin.iOS development. It is quite invasive and does not have an option to turn off or run in the background. Rather it runs in the task tray and has a popup that does not minimize on screen.
By request, we will be adding an option that is off-by-default in Tools -> Options -> Xamarin -> iOS to enable/disable iOS documentation sync. :)
Fixed in version 22.214.171.124 (master)
