Fedora Extras don't allow this.

I'm not sure that this package is a great example:
[alain@ download]$ rpmlint k3b-0.12.15-0.FC5.1.i386.rpm | grep E: | wc -l
[alain@ download]$ rpmlint k3b-0.12.15-0.FC5.1.i386.rpm | grep W: | wc -l

Probably, this package won't be accepted in FE.

It seems to me that the "/usr/share/doc/HTML/$LANG/common" directory should be 
owned by kde-i18n-$LANG package

I found something strange

[alain@ ~]$ rpm -q kde-i18n-French
[alain@ ~]$ rpm -ql kde-i18n-French | grep "/usr/share/doc/HTML/fr/common"
[alain@ ~]$

/usr/share/doc/HTML/fr/common is empty!

I download the German one, that is the same....

Somedoby know why?
