Packages which need internet access, downloading source before build, should not be part of main.

severity 146096 serious

Some packages maintained by jfs require within the build process 
the ability to do "cvs co" from cvs.debian.org, and they do not contain
the full source in the source package.

In my understanding, packages in main should not require
cvs access to cvs.debian.org to build from source.

I would like some educated suggestions from people,

My suggestion would be to add the debian/ dirs to the ddp
CVS directories, and use cvs-buildpackage to generate the
documentation packages.

manual/Makefile contains the following: 

# borrowed from the  java-common packages
sgml: debian-euro-support.sgml
        (cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-doc -z3 checkout -
d DOC ddp/manuals.sgml/euro-support/debian-euro-support.sgml; mv DOC/debian-euro
-support.sgml .; rm -rf DOC)

This is unacceptable.
