12 One more thing came up on IRC: einstalldocs (and therefore the default
13 install function) installing README* that catches README.html as well.
14 I'd rather not add more dohtml-like magic and say it's fine.
16 Or more generically, it's fine to install HTML docs outside
17 ${docdir}/html -- as long as docdir ends up being sane. That is:
19 1. single or small number of not-really-linked-together HTML files may
20 land in ${docdir} directly,
22 2. trees of HTML files (references, handbooks etc.) should land
23 in a subdirectory of docdir (via docinto; dodoc),
25 3. ${docdir}/html is recommended for commonly used HTML documentation
26 (the reference manual, for example). However, packages may use other
27 subdirectories if they see fit (e.g. when there's more than one tree of
28 HTML docs).
30 What do you think?
