We do indeed change it to /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML. This is so that it uses the same directory as KDE 3 packages and their documentation can appear in the KDE 4 khelpcentre. I think Debian had some conflicting packages which we didn't so it wasn't suitable to change at the time. We install a symlink /usr/share/doc/kde4 -> /usr/share/doc/kde so we don't have to change every package compared to Debian. > So obviously this difference does not make kubuntu people very happy because > extra work is needed for merging packages from Debian.
