Inconsistencies in a documentation layout
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:48 EDT
A content of directories /usr/share/doc/samba-2.0.7/docs/htmldocs
and /usr/share/swat/help is nearly identical but not quite. One would
think that at least identical documents should be replaced in one
place by links to ensure consistency.
Also /usr/share/swat/using_samba/ smells to me like a documentation
but it is not in /usr/share/doc tree. It is probably where it is because
swat will serve its content on line when swat is used. At least a link to
it should be provided somewhere in /usr/share/doc/samba*/ or somebody
not running swat may easily miss it. Note that by default swat is off.
This is not exactly feasible.
- the docs in /usr/share/doc/samba-2.0.7 are in the samba package
- swat is a separate subpackage
You can't have the files in swat be symlinks, because the packages might have
been installed with --excludedocs. And you can't have the docs be symlinks,
because swat might not be installed at all.
