Yes, I know. At the beginning, it was because it was not allowed to
upload .sh files with drupal. Afterward, I found where I can change this
configuration. But, I'm not sure it's a good idea. I prefer people to
check the files and think a bit before executing them :)

Hmm, right. There are 2 problems :
- khelpcenter doesn't use the KDEDIRS when it looks for documentation,
it only looks in /usr/share/doc/kde (at least with my configuration)
I didn't find a way to specify additional paths for dirs. I'm not even
sure it's possible...
I tried to symlink the directory and it works. But that's not very clean :(
- documentation is not installed for digikam with my script, only
kipi-plugins. I will try to fix that (the doc/ directory is not checked
out by svn).

I did some quick tests and it seems to work for me too !
I'm not sure it works in all condition, but I will add that.

Well, yes :)) I did some tests on a dual Amd Opteron dualcore. It was a
bit faster to compile digikam on this compute server ;-)

Thanks for your report.
