Re: doc-base is hugely unloved; bug mass-filing needed?

windlord:~> lintian-info -t possible-documentation-but-no-doc-base-registration
N: possible-documentation-but-no-doc-base-registration
N:   The package ships a .html or .pdf file under /usr/share/doc/, which
N:   are usually documentation, but it does not register anything in
N:   doc-base. (Files under an examples directory are excluded.)
N:   Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 9.10 (Registering Documents
N:   using doc-base) for details.
N:   Severity: wishlist, Certainty: possible

possible/wishlist means that it's an info-level tag.  Lintian doesn't
display info-level tags by default, intentionally, to encourage more
people to use it who don't want to see things that aren't required.

I think wishlist is the correct severity for this.
