Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

I've found lots of broken symbolic links inside /usr/share/doc/openoffice* by using this command:

$ find -L /usr/share/doc/*office* -type l -exec ls -l "{}" \;

Here's the full list, minus non-relevant columns:

/usr/share/doc/broffice.org/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/mozilla-openoffice.org/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-base/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-base-core/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-calc/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-core/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-draw/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-filter-binfilter/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-gnome/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-gtk/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-impress/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-math/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-officebean/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-presentation-minimizer/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-report-builder-bin/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/openoffice.org-writer/changelog.gz -> ../openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz

Also, running:

$ apt-file search openoffice.org-common/changelog.gz

Yields no result.

So, it's either a matter of removing those missing links from the respective packages, or adding a changelog.gz file to openoffice.org-common.

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to tell my system:

- Ubuntu 9.04 (upgraded from 8.10)
- OpenOffice.org 1:3.0.1-9ubuntu3 (upgraded from an unofficial 3.0 PPA repository)

Thanks for the report, I forgot to remove the changelog links when the changelog went away during the ooo-build conversion to the git revision control system.
