I haven't actually read all the text, however I saw that sections
are named really general, so I thought the idea was to describe
everything related to for example FTP servers, UUCP etc.
The mechanism for linking doesn't exist, however that doesn't mean
that anyone should try to rewrite in Debian manuals what is already
written in LDP manuals. Assuming that it *is* written in LDP manuals.
Someone from the -doc group should take a closer look at LDP docs
and make a short summary of what is already written and where is
room for Debian-related improvement (where details matter).
I'll have time to take a look at it later next week.
