[Build-common-hackers] Bug#207775: installs uneeded documentation in debhelper.mk

Package: cdbs
Severity: normal


CDBS installs all the "apparently" useful docs it finds in the source package.

DEB_INSTALL_DOCS_ALL = $(filter-out $(DEB_INSTALL_CHANGELOGS_ALL),$(shell for f in README NEWS TODO BUGS AUTHORS THANKS; do if test -s $(DEB_SRCDIR)/$$f; then echo $(DEB_SRCDIR)/$$f; fi; done))

I normally weed out empty or unneeded docs and add only the useful ones to debian/docs, which is then used by dh_instlaldocs.

I think cdbs shouldn't add doc arguments to dh_installdocs if a *.docs file exists for the package it is being run for.
