I see what you mean. The links point to non-existent subdirectories of
/usr/share/doc, but the .docrc files (indexes?) exist pointing to the
missing files. Quite a mess.

I grabbed the html.tar.bz2 file as an example. This is referenced on
the "Welcome" page. It comes with an install script, but this balks at
the existence of the link. I can overcome this of course, but I assume
it'll leave me vulnerable to the next update to quanta-data. Still,
it's the best short-term solution, I guess.
I'll hassle the developers, as you suggest. I wonder if it's bent in
Feisty; I think it's due out quite soon.
Thanks for the help.
