Bug#608887: release-notes: Debian Documentation and Debian Wiki in Chapter 6

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

In Chapter 6. More information on Debian GNU/Linux, I have few touch up

DDP was mentioned but its link is pointed to
 http://www.debian.org/doc/ddp (not the best page for us).

As I recall, DDP web pages were reorganized some time ago and this
particular page is more of historic place holder with half the page
talking "Problematic manuals".  We should use instead the following for
the entry point for the DDP and other key documentations:

Contributor of DDP should be more happy to see 

In order to switch all translation in any state to be updated, I request
to change release-notes.ent content for url-ddp.  This is used twice in
the whole document and switching from .../doc/ddp to .../doc/ is better.

Also Debian Wiki has grown to be an important documentation resource for
the user which needs to be mentioned.  (although .../doc page mention it.)
(Since debian-www is used by Wiki people, I CC my bug report there.)

Since Debian Wiki is not just for DebianIRC, I wish its reference to be
tuned in the same chapter.

I summary, I propose attached patch.
