You are right it was. In a somewhat misguided attempt to do version
control I did this. I have reverted back to using the original
tar-ball (excluding the copyrighted articles).

The second paragraph is gone. And a '/' is added.

How do I get it there? Or rather, the documentation is installed in a
hierarchy, and there are references (e.g. doc/GETTING_HELP refers to
gnosis/xml/pickle/doc/HISTORY), how can I preserve the hierarchy, but
install it in /usr/share/doc/$package instead?

I have taken a look, and made some changes. I am not sure I am 100%
compliant. This made me change the name of the package to python-gnosis
rather than gnosis-utils.

As before it is all available at:
