Does anyone have an idea why /usr/share/doc/sed-4.2.2 contents are


I can't see anything suspicious in spec file, maybe something on builder
back in Dec 2012 (patch package dated 2012/10/05 is similar)?

...or, wait a minute:

ipoldek --skip-installed rsearch -f '//usr/share/doc/.+/(NEWS\|README\|ChangeLog\|AUTHORS\|BUGS)$/i'

464 package(s) found.

e.g. povray:

drwxr-xr-x        58    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7/
drwxr-xr-x        93    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7.0/
-rw-r--r--      1377    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7/AUTHORS
-rw-r--r--        41    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7/ChangeLog
-rw-r--r--      2249    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7/NEWS
drwxr-xr-x      4096    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7/html/
-rw-r--r--       670    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7.0/AUTHORS.gz
-rw-r--r--        61    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7.0/ChangeLog.gz
-rw-r--r--      1012    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7.0/NEWS.gz
-rw-r--r--      2109    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7.0/README.gz
-rw-r--r--     47709    /usr/share/doc/povray-3.7.0/changes.txt.gz

makes me think that some cases are files directly make installed into
%_docdir not put there by %doc, so excluding packages like kicad:

ipoldek --skip-installed rsearch -f '//usr/share/doc/.+-.+/(NEWS\|README\|ChangeLog\|AUTHORS\|BUGS)$/i'

415 package(s) found.
