I am perfectly happy with the doc packages going away. If someone wants to
work on or follow docs, using CVS/CVSup works just fine.
What do people think about:
ln -s /usr/share/doc /usr/local/www/data/doc
(s/data/data-dist, if you like)
...I try to set that up locally on anything that runs a webserver, just for the
sake of having it locally, but maybe that would be a good idea in general?
Either put something similar to http://www.freebsd.org/docs.html as
/usr/share/doc/index.html, or perhaps even update the index.html.XX files
already in www/data-dist to include a reference to localized FreeBSD docs.
