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.
