Hmm, you're the release notes maintainer.  If you want to split the
release notes into another package, that's certainly an option.  As
for the installation manual, I'm not wanting to move that to another
package because there's too much stuff I grab from the 'make' command
line, as well as dbootstrap messages and stuff. I probably will move
it out when we shift to debian-installer, but not until then.

I don't think it's much of a problem -- debconf can pretty much show
files, I think.  Would be nice for it to be i18n sensitive as well
about it...
