FWD: Bug#68552: dh_make/dh_installinfo mix /usr/info and /usr/share/info

Actually, I think the way debhelper does it is the way we decided to --
anyone remember?

Reply-To: Marius Vollmer <mvo@zagadka.ping.de>, 68552@bugs.debian.org

Package: debhelper
Version: 2.0.86

When debianizing a source tree with dh_make, the call to
dh_installdebs created this postinst commands for me:

# Automatically added by dh_installinfo
install-info --quiet --section "Gossip" "Gossip" /usr/share/info/gossip-sim.info
# End automatically added section

This will add an entry to /usr/info/dir for the file

I think this is wrong because either should gossip-sim.info be
installed in /usr/info, or install-info should add the entry to
/usr/share/info/dir (via the --installdir option).

The current behaviour is not strictly wrong because info files are
seatched in all directories, not just the one with the dir file
containing their entry, but I still think it is inconsistent enough to
be worth of investigation.
