Certainly!  Perhaps one of these years I'll find time to think about doing
that. :-)

Sure, I don't doubt that this is the case.  I'm just saying that, since the
devref is non-normative, it doesn't attract the same attention from the
community that policy does on keeping it updated, which is hard for a small
group of editors to overcome because people tend to be biased to think their
own viewpoint is the consensus viewpoint :)

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
