To:Debian Bug Tracking System From:Scott Kitterman Subject:Bug#664520: lintian: [new check] Unusual documentation package name, foo-docs Date:Sun, 18 Mar 2012 11:42:27 -0400
 

Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.5
Severity: wishlist

It turns out a few people (including me) have been using -docs for
documentation package names intead of -doc:

$ zcat Packages.gz | grep-dctrl -F Package -e '^.*-doc$' -ns Package | wc -l
2415

$ zcat Packages.gz | grep-dctrl -F Package -e '^.*-docs$' -ns Package | wc -l
42

Although I don't believe there's anything in policy about, I think it
deserves an information level tag to suggest naming the binary foo-doc
instead. Perhaps unusual-documentation-package-name.
