What I meant as a technical issue (well, not really an "issue", more a
decision to take) is how to maintain specific forks of the guide in case
each derivative wants to have its own version of the guide. But maybe
this is not needed at all. Have you maybe reviewed the content (as a
-doc member) of the guide for Ubuntu-specific content that does not
apply to Debian or other derivatives? If there is no such thing, then we
can just advertise it as the packaging guide for any Debian-based
distro. If this is the case, it might be worth to promote it to an URL
that reflect that.
