I presume you're the maintainer (haven't read the document in
while). The reason why I wanted it in DDP tree, is purely technical,
and for convenience sake - as you may have noticed, we are trying
to put some documents from the sources to the web pages, and having
tutorial in the same directory with same (well, not same but alike)
Makefile makes it easier. However, it is possible to handle it even
if it's not in the same branch.
Also, if tutorial was in the DDP tree it would feel more integrated.
Well, at least to me it would, since we already have FAQ in the DDP
tree and tutorial would round it up.

AFAIK, DDP CVS tree is readable and writable by any Debian developer.
I hope you don't have a problem with that - and I think we can assure
you noone will write anything in it without considering maintainer's

I don't want you to feel anyone forced you to move it, especially
because reasons are purely political and aesthetic.
