Mandriva doesn't, Red Hat doesn't, Fedora doesn't, SUSE doesn't, Open
SUSE doesn't, Gentoo doesn't.  (Lot's do, 'though.)  Some ship
installation manuals via their mirrors.

Anyway, FAQ 3.1.3 points readers to the Installation Manual.  Perhaps
this problem isn't big enough to invest precious time :)

cvs.debian.org debian-doc/ddp/manuals.sgml/faq/debian/ seems consistent
with other documents.  I just might get to that, soonish.

It somewhat relates to the debian-doc package split though.

(Hrm, after some more searching it seems I'm finding out on my own the
issues already listed in ddp-policy (http://www.debian.org/doc/topics
and http://www.debian.org/doc/todo) :)
