It could be that at some time in the past "package documentation" was
replaced for bidi. But even in February 2018 there were "Package source
documentation" and "Package user documentation" in the catalog entry of
I am not familiar how texdoc operates. But I assume that the .tlpobj
files are the sources used by texdoc to determine what to display.
Perhaps indirectly, if those .tlpobj files are inserted into a database.
So, looking into the .tlpobj files in the current texlive installation
on my system I find occurrences like follows:
- "Package documentation": 85449 occurrences
- "Package source documentation": 66 occurrences
- "Package user documentation": 66 occurrences
- 200 occurrences of different varieties like
- "Package short documentation"
- "Package and font documentation"
