Bug#401233: debian-installer-manual: how to get the guide source should be clarified

Package: debian-installer-manual
Severity: wishlist


It's not clear to me how to get the source for the Debian Installation
At the Debian Documentation Project page[1], there's a Subversion
command line that will probably checkout the latest development
version (right?).  This seems OK.

But the published version for the stable release[2] does not tell
any method to get source for that version.
I think it should made easy to get the source for the published version
of the guide, ideally with a link to a good (gzipped or bzipped2) tar
archive of the complete source.
I tried to browse through the WebSVN interface, but I quickly got lost...

After some failed tries, I figured out that I could get the source package
of debian-installer-manual (sarge version), but it's not really clear to
me whether this is the same exact version as the one "published for the
stable release"[2]... Is it the same?

In any case, I think that a good link in the webpage[2] would really
make things easier (especially for users that lack enough familiarity
with Debian).

Can we have this fixed for the next stable release (etch), please?

Thanks for your attention.
