For example I consider the historic changelogs to be just an upstream
changelog splitted over several files. And IMHO the upstream changelog
should be there even if you don't install the zsh-doc package. (It
causes a lintian warning of severity "pedantic" if it's not there.) I
also consider CREDITS to belong to the default installation.
Then again I do see the argument of disk-space. The biggest
documentation files in zsh-common (using "dlocate -ls zsh-common |

So that'd be around 800kB saved in zsh-common with zsh.texi.gz and the
historic changelogs moved to other binary packages.

I already thought about that one, too. I think it belongs to zsh-dev
if it belongs anywhere else.
I think that's a useful nice summary of the upstream project. I think
that it should stay in zsh-common.

Yeah, I know that bug report. I already commented about it and at
least MACHINES was my suggestion there. I must though admit that that
bug report was no more very present in my mind, so thanks for

Definitely. But I still consider that bug of minor severity, so I'll
likely fix it somewhen after the Jessie release (or for Experimental),
but I can't say when.
I replied to #469521 only for that part of the discussion in #768937,
because that bug report should focus on the more severe stuff. :-)
