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

Why the maintainer only?  Why not me making local package?

refresh: clean
        cd FAQ && cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/debian-doc up

If -d is not used, it asks Josip's password thus maintainer only :)
CVS/Root is rightfully ":ext:joy@cvs.debian.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.
