Despite of this conversation, I've found you have packaged a new
sylpheed-gtk2-doc from your sylpheed-gtk2 sources instead of depending
on the existing sylpheed-doc.
As the contents of both packages are the same, there is no point
on having both in Debian, so I'd suggest you to file a removal bug
against your package, see Developers Reference  for how to do it.
