KDevelop 1.2, 1.3 KDE 2 templates corruption

Hi there,

just for your information: by yesterday noon I got to know that there is
a serious error in the KDE 2 templates regarding the installation path
of the documentation of a project. This error occurs due to a malicious
line in the Makefile.am in the directory containing the index.docbook
file.

Problem description: 
--------------------
The Project tree stores the index.docbook by default in:

/projectname/doc/en/

The Makefile.am there contains two lines:

KDE_LANG = en
KDE_DOCS = AUTO

As AUTO defines that the documentation will be generated and installed
automatically, it will be placed during make install in:

$KDEDIR/share/doc/HTML/en/en
instead of 
$KDEDIR/share/doc/HTML/en/projectname

Problem solution:
-----------------

For existing projects this bug can be avoided by changing the
Makefile.am to:

KDE_LANG = en
KDE_DOCS = projectname


Thanks for your attention and sorry for the trouble this has caused. I
hope everyone that has written a KDE 2 application with KDevelop isn´t
too disappointed by this error - as it wasn´t noticed until yesterday we
obviously couldn´t do anything about it. KDevelop 1.3 final will have
this error fixed.
