I think that what Frans was trying to say was that we've been aware of
these issues with the manual for some time and have been working on
splitting it out of the d-i package since before Oldenburg.

So more talk about it, let alone large quantities of bile and flames
are just useless noise that this list doesn't need. Especially when

That's never been a very viable option since the debian-installer-manual
is not arch indep and served the dual purpose of keeping the buildds
happily building the non-deb parts of d-i.
