Bug#106073: debian-policy: please specify installation locations for -doc packages
[ I see, this bug is already reported, so let this be a reply... ]
Several packages are divided into package and package-doc, some even
in package-doc-html or something like that, but the documentation
files are installed in different locations at the maintainers
discretion. If you install exim-tls and exim-doc-html, then you will
for the html files. Policy doesn't specify this. Some examples:
apache-doc : /usr/share/doc/apache
bind9-doc : /usr/share/doc/bind9-doc
gnupg-doc : /usr/share/doc/gnupg-doc
grub-doc : /usr/share/doc/grub-doc
htdig-doc : /usr/share/doc/htdig-doc
mysql-doc : /usr/share/doc/mysql-doc
Please specify the correct location in paragraph 13.3 of the policy.
I prefer the first variant, because you didn't need to know, whether
there is some kind of -doc package directory you have to look in.
changelog, changelog.Debian, and copyright file of package-doc
should still be put into /usr/share/doc/package-doc, just the data
files I wish to be located in /usr/share/doc/package. Thank you!
