Package: gstreamer0.10-plugins-gl-doc
Version: 0.10.2-1
Severity: normal


this package installs html documentation to /usr/share/gtk-doc only.
While that's useful to users of whatever software references that
directory (no clue what that would be, and I don't care either), it
requires an extra step for those of us who don't.

Policy 12.3:

	Any files that are referenced by programs but are also useful as
	stand alone documentation should be installed under
	`/usr/share/<package>/' with symbolic links from

This package does the former, but not the latter.
