My personal opinion is that we should exclude it entirely because it is
too big, rarely needed, and if people really want it they can easily get
it from the Internet. However other people disagree and they think it
is important for us to ship it.
I would support the idea of a kdelibs-docs package, but it would be up
to the KDE package maintainer to do it.
