Can someone tell me what package should own /usr/share/gnome/help,
if individual packages placing files there should own it? The latter

me. Is there any reason why /usr/share/gnome/help shouldn't just be
owned by filesystem? It already owns /usr/share/gnome.
yelp owns it. There's a question of whether packages which have gnome
help should Require yelp or not. I think it's a bug if a package has a
help menu that doesn't work so I lean towards requiring it. Others
think help should be optional (like man pages and other documentation).
If yelp is not Required, then filesystem should own
/usr/share/gnome/help. If yelp is required, the filesystem ownership
will do no harm.
Actually, it seems that several other packages own /usr/share/gnome
too, which probably begs for some bugs to be filed.
