Please, let's not do that. Having two possible different places for
the same documentation is very bad. One might have two copies of each
document, one may have outdated documents being used, etc. 

Let's do the things the way we've done 'til now: giving tar.gz
packages updated daily. 

Distributors can get it and package the way they want (without having
to duplicate our job or without us having to duplicate their job) and
users can get this source and recreate their package with their
distributions package system.
