No thanks. I see no reason why _I_ should make that effort.

As you seem to think that a change is needed and would improve things, it 
would be nice if you could explain, in some detail, what is currently 
lacking and how extra uploads would improve things. And it would be extra 
nice if you could show in that explanation that you actually understand 
(or at least have tried to understand) how the current setup works.

I think that's primarily because nobody had an opinion on it as so far 
nobody has ever shown any real and sustained interest in helping out with 
the manual [1]. So TBH I'm not very impressed by that argument.

As soon as someone steps up and actually commits to helping out with 
maintenance of and RM for the manual (which is a fairly serious amount of 
work BTW), I'll be happy to explain how and why I do things as I 
currently do them [2].


[1] Yes, faw does the daily builds, but the original intention was that 
he'd take over RM, which never happened (which is fine). And yes, Colin 
is very good at providing/committing patches when he makes functional 
changes in D-I, but that's not the same as what we're talking about here.

[2] Just as I did, in great detail, when faw took over the daily builds.
