Also from that page is this:

    As one final alternative, which works only with Emacs Info, you
    can change the Info-directory-list variable. For example:

    (add-hook 'Info-mode-hook '(lambda ()
                 (add-to-list 'Info-directory-list
                              (expand-file-name "~/info"))))

dh-elpa's TODO has:
* missing features                                                              
*** info                                                                        
       - completely untested at the moment

For the sake of completeness it's worth mentioning that the dh-elpa
could hypothetically add new paths to Info-directory-list; however,
given that this bug is about how the updated info page isn't found by
the standalone Info reader, modifying the environmental variable
INFOPATH seems like the necessary approach.

Instead of doing this with per-package granularity, maybe '--with
elpa' could tell dh_installinfo to install to
/usr/share/info/elpa/foo.info instead of /usr/share/foo.info?
