No, actually it's quite tragic.

Sorry, no can do.

Properly setting down everything involved in RM for the installation guide 
would require hours of work. I see no reason to make that effort unless 
someone is actually interested in and willing to commit to helping out 
with the work on the installation guide.

The normal first step in such a process is for such a person to become 
actually involved in the package, which would also mean he/she'd gain 
most of the needed knowledge as a side effect of working on the package. 
So far I have seen absolutely zero involvement (other than already 
mentioned earlier in the thread) from anybody on the team.

Why exactly should they need to make mistakes? The installation-guide 
package is being properly maintained. Sure, there's a lot that can be 
improved, but that is _content_, and that's not what's being discussed 

Releasing D-I in no way depends on uploads of the installation-guide. 
Sure, it's nice if the timing is coordinated, especially when you get to 
the stage of RC releases, but other than that there is zero dependency.
