Something like that is already done for a lot of the finished docs.

How do you mean?

They're already WML, so we only need an admin to copy the CVS tree from
/cvs/debian-doc/ddp/webpages to /cvs/webwml/webwml/english/devel/ddp .
And make any additional adjustments to the Makefile etc.

The unfinished stuff shouldn't be part of the web pages, because it gets
mirrored that way.

That I think has been the whole problem: how to move only the finished
stuff to /doc/ddp/, without the development stuff. I think we should edit
the DDP web pages once we move them to the website so that all references
to unfinished stuff are removed.

Perhaps the stuff in development should be put on (and linked to) another
machine so that it doesn't get mirrored? We have several machines to pick

Or just implement the separation like above.
