The contents of the doc directory in the source package should be copied to /usr/share/doc/lm-sensors

the site is still gone - mirror at:

That directory it is in is its md5 hash.
This task depends upon

Would the attach diff fix this? (pls notice that it also includes fix for  FS#58669 ).

Yes. (That said, I don't currently have an Arch install available to test.)

I don't see any reason to install them - most of the contents of the doc dir is related to installing/packaging. Some other files are obsolete (the content of vid is not needed since linux 2.6.9) or outdated (temperature-sensors refers to an unexistant doc/chips dir). It seems to me that installing inaccurate or obsolete docs would cause more harm than good.

You are right for v3.4 (which is itself outdated), but I looked at the documentation at [1], i.e. the current git repos, and noticed that some docs were updated 4 months ago... So I quickly changed the PKGBUILD, while at it. Also, I followed Fedora and installed README which is updated as well... But I agree, this is not urgent...

Also, I'm sorry for hijacking this bugreport, but we can also drop the fancontrol patch that addressed  FS#34187 . It didn't fix anything (simply refactored the code and hid the error). The actual bug was fixed upstream [2] in 2014 before 3.4 was released, so this version already includes the fix...

Thanks, removed the patch. As for the docs, it doesn't make much sense for the current release as noted. If/when a new version is released we can reevaluate
