I would be willing to make a package to provide the packaging manual and the 
other major debian manuals in SGML form if I might have some help building a 
list of the documents to provide.  (would of course be very simple to build...)

and would we want maybe a seperate package for debianmaintainer-doc and 
debianuser-doc.  each could provide the documentation (those listed under the 
debian documentation page...) in their appropriate categories (maintainer and 
user...) in various fromats (SGML, TeX, ps, txt, dvi...).

what do you think?  do I/we need permission to make such a package?  if so, 
from who?

etc, etc, etc.............
