Hello,

apparently, Debian and Kubuntu use different paths for HTML docs. Debian uses 
/usr/share/doc/kde4/HTML and Kubuntu uses /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML. I don't 
know why this did happen (I didn't care much about KDE 4 in its very early <= 
KDE 4.0.x days when it was unusable) though I would be very interested in 
hearing good reasons. My wild guess is /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/common 
conflict with kdelibs-data (KDE 3)?.

Upstream default is yet another path (/usr/share/doc/HTML), which obviously is 
not a very good choice for Debian given how all packages use 
/usr/share/doc/<package>.

So obviously this difference does not make kubuntu people very happy because 
extra work is needed for merging packages from Debian. As far as I understand, 
they want Debian to switch. I also think that this difference in configuration 
could be avoided since there does not seem to be a good reason for it. So:

1) Which distro should switch and why? Make take on this is:
  a) as far as I understand, Kubuntu diverted from Debian on their own will 
sometime during KDE 4.{12} (please correct me if I'm wrong, I really don't 
know) and face consequences now;
  b) but we also pursue for s/kde4/kde/ where kde4 is pointless. AFAIK, 
/usr/share/doc/kde4/ brings no advantages to the table in comparison with 
/usr/share/doc/kde. What is more, /usr/share/doc/kde is more traditional as it 
was used by KDE 3 as well.

2) Now implications of Debian switch:
  a) it is late in the release cycle, RMs won't be very happy about it and may 
not even allow it when/if we ask;
  b) almost all affected packages (48 [ 30 excluding KDE SC]) will need 
maintainer uploads;
  c) majority of official KDE SC packages are affected (18 out of 23). So the 
only opportunity I see for this is KDE SC 4.4.4 release;
  d) if we do not do it for squeeze but for squeeze+1, we will complicate life 
for backporters;
  e) if we do it later, there will be more packages to fix;
  f) affected packages are mostly maintained by pkg-kde and pkg-kde-extras 
[1];
  g) we would need to solve one package conflict (kdelibs-data vs. kdelibs5-
data) for the switch and some changes to k3b-i18n will be needed [2];
  h) volunteers are needed for pulling this off. That is mass bug reporting, 
likely patch/NMU preparation (NMU sponsoring could be arranged if needed), 
tracking status. Personally, I do not volunteer.
