Re: working on Debian FAQ for shipping with lenny: new package "debian-faq" (was: Re: doc-debian [...] ready for upload? [...])

Hi Javier,

Do you have time to upload a doc-debian package without the FAQ content
within a couple of weeks?  Or would you rather have me prepare such a

Is it OK if I add myself to the debian-faq Uploaders, or would you
rather do a FAQ upload yourself?

The new debian-faq sourcepackage, as in SVN now, builds the new binary


These hold the translations which were not hopelessly out of date.  If
someone updates another translation, it's easy to convince the source
package to build another binary package.

(I assume the packages
