I am flattered.  But authoritative name such as "Debian Reference" bears
big responsibility.  (I am scared.)  If no one objects, I will change
its title as you indicated or to the any good alternative name before
asking some one to package this as .deb for Debian.

After all, Josip, you are a doc-debian package other key documentation

"Jul  9  1998" (For English original)  I hardly call it "updated".

In plain words of a non-native person, this is simply "Introduction to
the Debian Documentation".

I agree. http://www.debian.org/doc/ddp should not contain direct links
to these but just a single link to the archived document lists.


PS: I CC this to sourceforge.net ML so translators and proof readers can
be updated about situation.
