Also, the FTP maintainers did not want to use this layout. Read these relevant threads: http://lists.debian.org/debian-doc/2002/debian-doc-200205/msg00002.html http://lists.debian.org/debian-doc/2002/debian-doc-200205/msg00113.html http://lists.debian.org/debian-doc/2002/debian-doc-200205/msg00184.html http://lists.debian.org/debian-doc/2002/debian-doc-200206/msg00031.html A summary of all of them would be: - I was fed up with the current situation of the ftp/doc layout (BTW, a bug should be filed) since it did not include translations and this layout is used by the debian-CD script to create the official CDs. - A (manually) created new layout was proposed, which included translations. - Michael Beattie didn't like the previous version (it was later improved), the rest of the ftpmaster team did not answer to the RFC - We didn't (completely) agree on a naming convention or layout (it was discussed some times but we had different points of view) - Denis created some script to autogenerate some of the Index stuff. His scripts (and mine) are in the CVS:ddp/utils So the current state of the issue is that it's half-way automated, the ftp.debian.org/debian/doc is still managed through by-hand, the FTP masters have not acknowledged the need to fix this and the woody CDs (and 3.0r1 too) will have the old layout. Might I say :( ? Javi PS: I'm going to file that bug for ftp.debian.org now. BTW.
