I agree with most everything you say.

They are in seperate packages.  I don't know if the current
maintainers would want to use the DDP CVS area or not.  You'd have to
just email them and ask.  I know Debian policy already has it's own
area on cvs.debian.org.  As does 'tutorial'.

I would imagine the tutorial should move to ddp area; I doubt
debian-policy will since it really does stand alone in so many ways.

I always thought that we should be able to cope with the fact that
some documentation maintainers might not want to use the DDP cvs area.
For instance, the debiandoc-sgml stuff is maintained with
debiandoc-sgml sources by Ardo.  Still, we should be able to serve
that up and cope.  It's a tough issue, though (we might have to resort
to manual updating).

Anyone in group Debian on va, which is to say, any maintainer.

No problem.
