I think there was no rule decided. Afair we wanted to let it up to the
maintainer if he wants to add info files and further documentation when
he thinks it's helpful. I don't use the info command at all but could
also live with enabling all documentation. We ship headers in every
case so why not all possible content upstream developers install by

Maybe we should put a clear statement into the Arch packaging standards
wiki page.
