cc:ed Carsten and Mark that are having a
similar thread: "contributing Debian build scripts"]

Stefano, sorry to bother you again,
but now I'm pretty sure I've *not* understood the *key point* of
your request (that you have briefly mentioned before, but that I
skipped, because it was unclear to me).
Some question come to my mind (see below for a general question):
Could you, please, elaborate who are the distribution editors?
+ Carsten with file org-mode.zip?
+ FSF emacs+[stable]-orgmode?
and what do mean, when you say "upstream"/"downstream" packages?
Do you suggest that the org-mode-code + worg-site is packaged
and built as:
org-mode-worg-site (upstream) for developers
/ then splitted in
org-mode+info.zip (downstream) that user will download-install?
I mean, before getting involved in Org's adventure Carsten
wrote some 'little' .el files, but I think he might be lacking of a
'vision' as packager, if I look at org-mode from a "DD point of view".
Org-mode grew from requests of users and the "worg site" is the
*current*, as you wrote, answer to the need of documentation.
But, being DD, you have a really wide experience in packages and
packaging, that in org-mode community, I think, almost nobody else has.
So could you, please, suggest how will you split/build/create/organize...
Thank you for your time and patience,
