Sorry, I was not saying that.
What I'm saying is that samba packages should come with man pages only
and that we should provide a separate package with compiled docs (the
oreilly book, the samba collection howto, etc ...)

Of course we will also have 2 source packages.

Something like:


so that packagers can have their samba + samba-docs packages and samba +
samba-docs source packages.
