What I said was a comment w.r.t. bsd's manpages are core to their system.

As in, since we have snapshot.debian.org can we not use that platform to
extract and serve useful stuff over http directly / easily viewable,
e.g. manpages using ubuntu's or some other code. And/or possibly change
logs / news files, etc.

As in, snapshot.debian.org is just as central to debian infrastructure
as things bsd has in place.
