In which case, could we have a package that delivers the
packaging manual in SGML form, so we may process it as we wish? (I
also wish all info files were also present as texi files, so I could
run TeX on them).
I know they are available in the source package, but dselect
does not know how to get them off the ftp sites.
Maybe I'm opening a can of worms here. I wish there was an
easy front end to handle getting individual source packages. So I
could maybe compile some personally (I can't send Faxes using mgetty
fax --- I have a US robotics sportster modem -- I need to recompile
to set some config flags, I think).
Something a future version of deity should handle?
