Bug#1464: linuxdoc-sgml' dependencies questioned
> Package: linuxdoc-sgml
The release of linuxdoc-sgml-1.2-2 fixes this bug report.

It doesn't depend on anything now, as HTML is generated without requiring any other Debian packages.
> Furthermore, it should list the virtual name `info-browser' as an

Now use Optional field instead - is that better?
