keeping my wonders and researchs on building rpms and since im creating 
a -doc pkg for rubygem-state_machine, because it seems it's a good idea 
and following previous discussión about if tests are documentation or 
not, it came to me the question about what about devel docs vs user doc 
rpm pkgs (where user is a regular user who uses certain app, and devel 
is a programmer who uses the app or library to devel certain derivative 

Should the -devel pkg include the whole documentation files in it? or it 
would requires furthers splitting as -doc-devel (-devel-doc)? (not so 
good idea for me)

If the main pkg is a user application one might think about -user-doc 

if the main pkg is a library, one might think about a -devel-doc subpkg.

any thoughts or policies about this?
