all is in the title : running `texdoc l2tabu-fr`:
- opens .../l2tabu-french/README
- instead of .../l2tabu-french/l2tabufr.pdf
As I understand it, it happens because the README has a details= string
(content is irrelevant) and l2tabufr.pdf does not. (If I edit my
texlive.tlpdb to remove the details= string, it finds the pdf first.)
This is a bug in the l2tabu-french catalogue entry, which I can fix.
I think texdoc could ignore details= strings on README documents. They
Also, the string here is "The document iself", which to my mind adds
nothing, but the verbiage is nevertheless useful in the presentation at,
e.g., http://ctan.org/pkg/voss-mathmode. Thus I think texdoc could also
ignore that particular string for priority purposes.
However, texdoc has not been updated since 2011. I believe Manuel is
busy with other projects. Would you like to work on it, Denis?
