I am talking about "The Debian Administrator's Handbook" by Raphaël and
Roland.  Such free book should be listed on the top of list.  That is
the point.

Very interesting pages which I was unaware.  Updating these and linkling
from https://www.debian.org/doc/ seems to be good idea.

Yes but his listed work is a non-free one as of now.  His post seems to
indicate he may go free ...

I meant by "put it on our web pages" as contents of the document are
available on www.debian.org.  Raphaël and Roland's free work is on
www.debian.org which means it is mirrored for easy access.  If martin's
work becomes free, we can do the same.
