OpenLayers 2.x is dead upstream, they have switched to Node.js since
3.x. Packaging that turned out to be worth the effort, the dependency
chain is too large and (tiny) Node.js packages still trigger too many
discussions in Debian. The OpenLayers.js provided by libjs-openlayers
is still used by several packages, so I'd like to keep it around for a
while longer.

Based on the popcon for openlayers dropping the -doc package is not
likely to adversely affect users. If that makes life for others easier,
I'm happy to stop building that binary package.

Kind Regards,
