Package: tex-common
Version: 1.9
Severity: normal

,----[ 90TeXDoc.cnf ]
| % the default extensions for documentation
| TEXDOCSSUFFIX = .pdf:.dvi:.ps:.txt
| % we allow some compression methods
| % put html at the very end, to avoid showing the Catalogue:
| TEXDOCHTML = .html
| % and put that all now together
However, this does not work, since TEXDOCEXT is already defined by
45TeXinputs.cnf and texmf.cnf is odd in that *earlier* entries take
precedence. This can be seen from

$ kpsewhich -var-value=TEXDOCEXT

which is the value defined in 45TeXinputs.cnf. The effect of this is
that, eg, for everyshi the html page from the Catalogue is found

$ texdoc -l everyshi

This does not happen with many other packages, since their
documentation comes in (uncompressed) PDF files:

$ texdoc -l array

Possbile solutions:

* put 90TeXDoc.cnf as 40TeXDoc.cnf before 45TeXinputs.cnf
* replace the definitions in 45TeXinputs.cnf by those in 90TeXDoc.cnf
  and remove the latter file
* fix texdoc so that it does not matter if a file is compressed or not

as indicated in the conversation in the bug, the necessary changes to
the conffiles were already done in sid when the bug was reported, or at
least when it was discussed. The other issues wrt texdoclua are already
solved, too.
