i second that.

I have a package in incoming that is just the docs for another package that is
already in debian. Is there any serious reason why such a package could
introduce new bugs ? it is only html and some ps file anyway.

If it should not go into potato, i should maybe put said docs into the package
itself ?

What if i fill a bugreport against the package saying the docs are missing ?
