Re: Again: where to put -doc packages ?
I don't know the official answer, but here's what
(as a long-time debian user) I'd suggest:
If the foo-doc package is documentation for foo,
it should go in the same group as foo.
If the package doesn't have a corresponding non-doc
package, or documents many packages, it should go
in the doc section. (Or maybe the text section,
but that's another discussion.)
But those are just my opinions.
