I read your proposal in #922222 to deal with this situation.
However, I wonder if we shouldn't switch to the solution, that's used for
other documentation in cron/parts/7doc (means: grap the documentation files
from the latest uploaded package version from the archive, instead of from 
VCS repo).

I realize there might be a reason for using a different system here, but as
manpower is an issue everytime here, my argument would be: make the system
easier (use the same system everywhere) instead of maintaining different

Of course, this would lead to more packaging work for the relevant doc packages
(for debian-history: we would need to do at least one upload per year, to get
the new leader documented on the website).
But looking at Laura's proposal, we are talking only about a very little number
of packages (if we leave out the /attic ones), so I think that could work.
I would volunteer for that upload work, if per-package upload rights were given
to me.

I have a tested patch for debian-history (against webmaster cron) ready and 
(Once this is up and running on www-master, there are also some changings 
needed in webwml though, but they are IMO uncritical.)

Any comments?
