Description From 2005-06-29 23:36:08
It may make more sense to use only %name for docdir, not %name-%version: it
makes file links less volatile.  Debian project may have had more discussions on
that.

Ideally, the behaviour could be controlled by some additional macro
(multidocdir? :) for easier use in packages which are designed to allow
simultaneous installation of several versions.
