a software that i am packaging  provides a -src and a -doc tarball. problem is that some of the docs are present in -src *as well*, but -doc is far more extensive. 1. http://emailrelay.sourceforge.net how should i proceed? - move all docs to a -doc package and delete all html and txt documentation (aside changelog, TODO, README etc) from the main package? - include *all* docs in the main package (deb.size += 400kb) - install the docs that come with -src in the main package, but also provide a -doc package with the contents of the -doc tarball? this will efectively result in some duplicate docs installed on the user system. and then i have another question: take two packages, mypackage.deb and mypackage-doc.deb, the documentation for the first package being provided by the second. why does mypackage-doc.deb install the docs into /usr/share/doc/mypackage-doc, but IMHO the mypackage docs should go into /usr/share/doc/mypackage and /usr/share/doc/mypackage-doc should only contain changelog, README and the other standard docs that most every package provides. is it that /usr/share/doc/<package> may only be touched by <package> and never by another .deb? -- martin; (greetings from the heart of the sun.) \____ echo mailto: !#^."<*>"|tr "<*> mailto:" net@madduck heisenberg may have been here.
