I think you are the best person to think about this, but I appreciate your answer and I agree!
The package is unfortunately already existing in Ubuntu, so I'll need to break/replaces the -doc package for some time, but nothing too worrying,because we already have a bad delta anyway...the package in Ubuntu has been uploaded as 0.8.0, so we had to call the version 0.8.0+real5prealpha+1-5ubuntu2 to make it recognized as "higher"
Having a new upstream snapshot might help :)
but if you can move the documentation, and enable parallel builds, it will simplify the delta to mostly zero until the next ubuntu LTS and next upstream is out!
thanks again,
