Comment 11 for bug 349725

I was able to reproduce some of the package installation failures while performing the kubuntu-8.04-to-9.04 upgrade (via jriddell's script) with doc-base 0.8.7 from the 8.04 release. With doc-base 0.8.7ubuntu1 from hardy-proposed, I was able to perform the same upgrade without hitting the package installation errors. Cursory explorations with dhelp and doc-central with doc-base 0.8.7ubuntu1 (pre-upgrade) didn't show any obvious regressions.

I consider the hardy component of this bug verification-done. Thanks!
