Well, it's true that most people package programs, but there's a fair bit of
documentation-only packages. :)

I figure we'd have much more documentation developers if we didn't have the
large doc-linux-* packages, and instead had individual or groups of LDP
HOWTOs in their own packages. (Not that I'm advocating splitting doc-linux,
it's just a thought.)

I think the real problem with joining Debian as a documenter is that you
either have to have worked a lot on an existing document in which case you
already seem to have access to all the resources you need to do it, or you
have to write a new document which is, well, troublesome. :) Becoming a
developer to make patches for documents is seen like becoming a developer
to make non-maintainer package uploads.
