Description of problem:
kdebluetooth has dangling symlink from
/usr/share/doc/HTML/ca/kdebluetooth/common to /usr/share/doc/HTML/ca/common

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Will be fixed in the next release.
Is this fixed? Can it be closed?
Uggh. Nope, sorry. :(
The fix must have slipped through the cracks.
I'll reapply the fix tomorrow and release an update.
OK. Now I remember:
The dangling symlink is part of the Catalan translation; If kde-i18n-Catalan is
installed, the symlink will dangle no more.
If I remove it, I'll lose the Catalan translation. (Far worse, depending on your
KDE configuration, additional dangling symlinks may appear.)
Creating empty directories that aren't being owned by anyone is also a bad
solution. (Directories will not be removed if/when KDE is uninstalled)
P.S. The problem seems to be shared by a number of other KDE applications:
E.g. /usr/share/doc/HTML/fr/common which is pointed by
/usr/share/doc/HTML/fr/kdebluetooth/common is actually being owned by k3b. (A
bug by itself)
In short, IMHO the least offending solution is keeping the dangling symlink as
Changing to CANTFIX.
