Though there are two FTBFS bugs on debian-refcard [0], this doesn't explains
#551229 refcard: FTBFS: pdfjoin: refcard-en-a4.s.pdf does not exist, no
files were processed
#522341 refcard: FTBFS: failure to process entity papersize

Indeed: 'make publish' is used to generate output from ddp-svn, but root
Makefile of ddp-svn doesn't include refcard [1], and refcard makefile
doesn't have any publish target [2].
So refcard may be published from the archive package, but nothing in the
specific cron part that extract data from the package. [3]

[1] http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/ddp/manuals/trunk/Makefile?view=markup
[2] http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/ddp/manuals/trunk/refcard/Makefile?view=log
[3] http://cvs.debian.org/webwml/cron/

So question for debacle: do you remember how refcard was published on
the website ? 

Do you prefer to see it published from SVN or package ?
