I may mention these, but the thing is that they're not officially
released or supported as of yet. I don't want to clutter a manual that's
already filled with information, especially for projects that aren't
ready for general users yet. In addition, Debian has about a zillion and
a half subprojects, and mentioning them all in the installation manual
is insane. Further, the manual is highly specific for a linux install,
so it's pointless to talk about non-Linux options when we don't really
document how to use them. All in all, it may get a mention in passing,
but my ultimate goal is to focus the manual tightly, which is the
fundamental goal of any editor.
