a test with piuparts revealed that your package uses files from
/usr/share/doc in its maintainer scripts which is a violation of
Policy 12.3: "Packages must not require the existence of any files in
/usr/share/doc/ in order to function."
These files must be moved to /usr/share/$PACKAGE and may be symlinked
This piuparts tests prevents the installation of (most) files into
/usr/share/doc with 'dpkg --path-exclude=...'.
