Yes it does. (In fact, the `games' top-level entry is in `menu',
not doc-base; see below...)

Argg! Sorry. I got them confused along the way (because of
another thread concerning icon sizes in menus).
Yes, I'd get rid of Apps in doc-base if I had the chance.
I don't think it helps to have a structure like:
- Linux System Administrators' Guide (it's not an app)
- The Debconf Programmer's Tutorial (shouldn't be in Debian?)
- How to report a bug in Debian (other entries are for DDs)
- Dwarf's Guide to Debian GNU/Linux (in System?)
- Installation and Getting Started Guide (html) (in Help?)
- Linux Network Administrators' Guide (html) (in Help?)
Docs are scattered in various places and you have to look
everywhere to make sure you haven't missed anything.
A few more comments, on topic this time!
-> for users or DDs or both?
-> would gnuplot go here or in math or science? (currently in math)
-> I something expect to see viewers here, except they
have their own section below.
-> everything including sound, but except viewers?
-> includes the privious mail section I guess
> System Administration
-> Including Debian user manuals or not?
-> as in text processing? I'm never sure what that means
from the name. Change to "Text processing/typesetting" ?
Where do RFCs go ?
Add a section for "Window Managers/Desktops" ?
