 I agree with characteristics of www and doc are different from each
 other, but I personally feel there is almost no difference between
 having them in two separated dirs and having them in a dir.  The
 reason why I like to have www in a subdir of doc is only for simplify
 the current build complexity due to the separated repos, so I am
 wondering how other people feel for having www in a subdir like

 Yes, I also think we should be careful about that.  I will send a
 patch to -doc before committing for discussing the implementation.
