Good. However, as you have noticed, situation is not so peachy :(
We'll have to work something out soon.

Hm, I'd agree with letting debiandoc-sgml stay standalone - it isn't
a SGML text afterall. The policy is important, probably the write
permissions on that are more strict...
Is packaging-manual in the same CVS sub-repository as policy?
However, I'll write to current maintainer of the tutorial and
let him know he's very welcome in DDP. I see no apparent reason
for the tutorial be left out of our effort.

Oh dear, all the roots I know would choke to death now :)
OTOH it's nice for me to know that I can make instant changes
when I see something wrong in the docs. I intend to add notes
about maint-guide in some of the related manuals... propaganda ;)
If anyone has a problem with that, he can revert the patch
and/or talk to me.
