Yes. As you may remember (I posted my HOs on -doc [1]) because of small
number of the docs that would be suitable for this. I looked over most
docs, and in most of them saw unfinishedness, incompleteness and overall
below-the-line quality. *sigh*

Well, we could export them all to the right directory right this moment,
but there are only five (5) docs that would *maybe* be good enough to
enter the wide world of www.debian.org and its mirrors. The 6 remaining
are *not* in shape to go anywhere. So we are on -1 :(

How can we resolve this? I don't think just not linking them from
/doc/index.html would be nice, since the mirrors will mirror it all.
OTOH, the overall size of all HTMLs in there is just ~600kb.

I must emphasize that this is all just MHO, and not a flame test.
