It's a bit more complicated than that because there are several
Emacs package suites in Debian:
- Emacs 21 is packaged in Debian as two source packages, emacs21
and emacs21-non-dfsg, the latter includes documentation and other
files deemed unsuitable for main, and is in Debian's non-free
section. In Ubuntu these packages are kept as is, but are
present together in the main section. So yes, Ubuntu includes
docs that Debian removes, but as two separate packages.
- The package that started this thread, emacs-snapshot, includes
all the upstream source including documentation, and is currently
in Debian main (but I asked for its removal a few months ago
after orphaning it). I'm still maintaining it outside Debian as
one package with documentation, which Ubuntu also includes (in
main). (emacs-snapshot is a packaged version of the Emacs CVS
version, and currently corresponds to Emacs 22.1.)
- There are emacs22 and emacs22-non-dfsg packages (based on an
older pretest release) in Debian experimental (respectively main
and non-free), and they are not in Ubuntu as far as I can tell.
