This is fixed in precise. The docs fail to build out-of-tree because the makefile uses relative paths to the source. Also, the devhelp version in oneiric expects the .devhelp filename to match the directory name, which is why the currently empty docs aren't showing up.

Attached a branch that updates the paths so the docs will build correctly in oneiric, and includes a link so devhelp can find them.

Hello Marcus, or anyone else affected,

Accepted webkit into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Tested the webkit 1.4.3-0ubuntu4 packages from oneiric-proposed. The documentation is built and available in devhelp. I did not encounter any issues with devhelp which uses webkitgtk 3.0 or liferea which uses webkitgtk 1.0.
