The package name is a misnomer nowadays.
I installed it expecting to browse the HTMl documentation. I understand
that upstream has removed the HTML documentation, so that's unfortunate.
However, does it make sense to continue calling this package "samba-doc"
while there is no documentation as such included in the package? The
This package contains all the manpage documentation for the Samba
However all the manpages are included in the main samba package,
as they should be.
I suggest renaming this package to samba-examples, and perhaps
make samba-doc a transitional package that suggests samba-doc-pdf?
