My guess, is if the linux-doc package is like the linux-kernel (or
linux-image) packages, is that if you install the 2.6.24 version
you'll always have the 2.6.24 version installed, even if 2.6.25
becomes available. But if you install linux-doc-2.6 it's a 'virtual'
package that automatically brings in the most recent version of that
package, so you'll get linux-doc-2.6.25 when it becomes available,
just like if you have linux-image-2.6 as a kernel package iinstalled,
rather than linux-kernel.2.6.whateveriscurrentnow :).

(or whatever it's called nowadays - linux-image, I suppose).
