Bug#637614: §9.10: Do not recommend to call install-docs, as it is triggered.
here is a patch that updates §9.10: now that doc-base uses triggers, I think it
is better to simply recommend to install the control files in
/usr/share/doc-base/, instead of recommending the use of install-doc.
Have a nice week-end,
Tsurumi, Kanagawa, Japan
