What about installing a CVS server on master which stores all our
documents? We could arrange file permissions so that the authors have
write permissions to only their chapters, the editor/maintainer has write
access to the whole manual, and everyone else has read-only permissions.

With that, everyone could check-out the latest version and provide you
with patches, which you can check and integrate later.

(AFAIK, there has already been such a CVS archive on master for the FAQ,
but it got lost in the move of master :)

BTW, updated documents usually have to be packaged up, uploaded to master
to get them into the doc/ directory, installed on fatman, and installed on
www.debian.org. Perhaps we should find a way where all this gets done

Well, I think the proposal who the <ref> tag should work is ready now.
I've already reported it as wish-list bug against debiandoc-sgml. I think
we could need a volunteer that implements it...
