Hmm. The impression I got from jason was that pserver is the normal
access method. However, this is the first time I've used remote CVS, so
I don't claim any expertise.

I will take a look when you do...

I certainly don't want to duplicate either files or effort. If you
already have a CVS repository containing a manual, the manual text ought
to be built from there. The debian-doc repository can be used if that
is more convenient.

I thought your suggestion was excellent. Once I can get cvs access sorted
out, I should be very grateful if you would implement it! I do want to be
a co-ordinator rather than write everything myself, after all!
