What exactly needs to be done? I'd say we should rearrange the whole
site, move all the documents on the site to /doc/ subdirectory,
and surely, remove ~elphick/ from the DDP address. No offense to
Oliver Elphick, but only by looking at the address (picture yourself
as a common net-surfer) it seems like some dark personal movement
hidden deep inside Debian :)

It would be even better to merge (if there is something useful
in current /doc/index.html) these two pages and put them on
that location (http://www.debian.org/doc/).

Is there some problem to that? IIRC both DDP files and web
files are in CVS, and both on va.debian.org.
