Bug#485566: please do not ship files under /var/www (as complained by lintian)

Package: ocsigen
Version: 1.0.0-1+b1
Severity: normal

ocsigen ships files under /var/www. A complete listings of them,
together with the reason why ocsigen shouldn't do that, is available at
http://lintian.debian.org/reports/tags/dir-or-file-in-var-www.html .

Moreover, in the particular case of ocsigen, I don't see the point of
using /var/www for those files, as ocsigen is itself the webserver and
AFAIK does not rely on an additional webserver to serve those files.
They can be installed anywhere, provided that ocsigen is configured to
look for the in the appropriate place.

If this is the default path for upstream, you might consider forwarding
the suggestion, as /var/www is not supported by FHS.
