How difficult is it to automate this?

1) Agree on file arrangements and file types to be published.
   --> Finish ddp-policy on FTP
2) Agree on which target name to make FTP contents ("ftp"?) which will
   be used in each document's Makefile:
   --> patch all the /ddp/manuals.sgml/<packagename>/Makefile
3) Create a new target ("ftp"?) in /ddp/manuals.sgml/Makefile which
   makes all the documents with target "ftp" and run Denis's indexing
   --> patch
4) Ask FTP account holder to run cron which checkout DDP CVS and build
   documents daily.
   --> script can be rip-off from current DDP CVS script :-)
