Hi David.
I made a patch [1] for manpages for our (old) version. Probably will be
good I you will be able to try compile xonotic by gmqcc 0.3. If it
works, I'm making many things for nothing :)

Let me a little disagree with you about tex file. This is a doc file for
compiler and should be installed exactly in /usr/share/docs/gmqcc/,
because it's that place where an end user will looking for compiler
docs. So, I deem it should be in the main package. But I have a
question: In what format should I compile the tex file? In pdf? In
pdf.gz? :)
In this case I will have to add to Build-Depends "texlive-latex-extra"
package, that will request more than 450 MB (!) of dependencies for
build. Not bad :)

About syntax dir and the additional pkg I'll think tomorrow...

The package is lintian clean for me :)
