Bug#265587: doc-debian: Need to add Etch

Package: doc-debian
Version: 3.0.2
Severity: normal

Since new testing will be Etch, we may want to add it to FAQ.

|   5.3.1 Which other codenames have been used in the past?
|    Other codenames that have been already used are: buzz for release 1.1,
|    rex for release 1.2, bo for releases 1.3.x, hamm for release 2.0,
|    slink for release 2.1 and potato for release 2.2.

Can I add woody and sarge here as I did for Debian Reference?
Do we need "other" in the references to codenames?  I think we should
drop it.
|   5.3.2 Where do these codenames come from?
|    So far they have been characters taken from the movie "Toy Story" by
|    Pixar.
|      * buzz (Buzz Lightyear) was the spaceman,
|      * rex was the tyrannosaurus,
|      * bo (Bo Peep) was the girl who took care of the sheep,
|      * hamm was the piggy bank,
|      * slink (Slinky Dog) was the toy dog,
|      * potato was, of course, Mr. Potato,
|      * woody was the cowboy.
|      * sarge was the sergeant of the Green Plastic Army Men.

If I take line from the commented section:
       * etch (Etch-a-Sketch) was the blackboard.

But I think this may be clearer:
       * etch (Etch-a-Sketch) was the toy blackboard.

Also add sid here:
       * sid was a boy next door who destroyed toys.

I will promise to keep code names lower case to be consistent within

Can I update DDP CVS?

By the way, do you mhave time to upload these, joy?

Although my time is tight, I may upload this too if you request.

I think #222102, #252794, and #212194 can be fixed if I package it.

Also close #220291 after checking it is dealt with...
