I think it's best to have one comprehensive page on the subject, which
just explains the process and the differences that apply to the Universe

I think for the PackagingGuide we should start off with what's in SVN
and DocBook right now and factor in all the pages on

In a second step - that still needs planning - I'd suggest to reorganise
the ToC to be more prioritised, meaning that it will be easy to figure
out what to look at on the first day, what to check out in the first
week, etc. 

I agree we should link to all the necessary information in the Debian
