I am working on bringing the libargtable2 package up to date with both upstream changes and the Debian policy. One of the changes state:
recommend to ship additional documentation for package
The package currently ships the docs in a package calles "libargtable2-docs" (plural). I am wondering whether I should rename it, and how to do it.
As far as I can tell, I have three options:
The incentive for doing 3 is that the dev package already depends on the docs package, so a transitional package might not be all that important.
Another question I have is regarding packaging. The Policy suggests that libargtable2-doc should install the docs to /usr/share/doc/libargtable2. It seems that debhelper is not a friend in that regard, pushing me to install to /usr/share/doc/libargtable2-doc. Am I missing some option that would make that easy?
