W zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory

All reports of zero-byte-file-in-doc-directory for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The documentation directory for this package contains an empty file. This is often due to installing an upstream NEWS or README file without realizing it's empty and hence not useful.

Files in the examples subdirectory are excluded from this check, but there are some cases where empty files are legitimate parts of the documentation without being examples. In those cases, please add an override.

Severity: normal, Certainty: possible

Check: files, Type: binary, udeb
