Got this error, but I'm not sure how to fix this. I use cdbs

N: W: rumor: info-document-missing-dir-section usr/share/info/
N: N:    This info document has no INFO-DIR-SECTION line and no 
--section option
N:    is passed to install-info in the package postinst maintainer script.
N:    install-info will be unable to determine the section into which this
N:    info page should be put. The best solution is to add a line like:
N:    N:      @dircategory Development
N:    N:    to the texinfo source so that the generated info file will 
contain a
N:    section. See /usr/share/info/dir for sections to choose from.
N:    N:    Another alternative that doesn't require modifying the 
source is to
N:    explicitly pass a --section option to install-info in the postinst
N:    maintainer script, although in this case you will need to write the
N:    postinst yourself and not use tools like debhelper to do it for you.
N:    N:    Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.2 (Info documents) 
for details.
N:    N:    Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Kind regards,
