Nice and simple wget commands. Works for anyone. No password.

Why the maintainer only? Why not me making local package?
cd FAQ && cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/debian-doc up
If -d is not used, it asks Josip's password thus maintainer only :)
CVS/Root is rightfully ":ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/debian-doc".
Isn't it better for anyone to make local package easily?
Well, updating also changelog with an entry indicating non-mainatiner
may be good idea, but I do not know how easily to do it automatically.
