Package: pnp4nagios-web
Version: 0.6.16-1
Severity: wishlist


This is (if at all) just a cosmetic issue:
Currently status-header.ssi is placed at

Now at one side this is ok,... because it's just an example
of what can be done with the "status-header" feature of Nagios/icinga.

On the other side... likely no one will ever modify this and use his
own version.
So I guess most people do about the following (using Apache and Icinga as examples)
to enable it:
Alias /icinga-cgi-url-path/ssi/status-header.ssi /usr/share/doc/pnp4nagios/examples/ssi/status-header.ssi

Well, I can't help but that seems ugly... because status-header.ssi is 
like executable code... and that should not be in /usr/share/doc/

As said I'm not even sure wether this is really better/cleaner... but what do you
think about moving that into /usr/share/pnp4nagios/ssi ?

Definitely it would be wrong to place them in /usr/share/icinga/htdocs/ssi/
or it's nagios counterpart!


btw: Is it by intention, that you put some of the docs from pnp4nagios-web
into /usr/share/doc/pnp4nagios/ ?
