Well, the difference between me pasting the path you tell me and doing
dpkg-deb -c on the .deb package is minor :)

It would still make sense to do it in the long run, because the automatic
build on www-master is a good regression test, and it allows people to
preview the newest versions of documents without having to use VCS and
without having them packaged.

That shouldn't really matter for these things, because they build docs from
reasonably safe data (with a trail in VCS), and even if that gets corrupted,
they build under a special unprivileged user so any impact would be limited.
