As an advisory, I'd be *really* against separating them out like 1.3.  I've 
been really aggravated by that separation.  Yes, the 2.x docs and source now 
have two separate build systems, but I honestly don't think it is a big deal 
for developers - it enforces that the docs and code represent the 'same' 

As a question, how would we deal with the branches to represent 
stable/unstable if we have separate source repositories for the doc and 
source?  By keeping them in the same repository, it's trivial.

I'd also say that separating out the docs into language packs doesn't seem 
right either as there should only be one release tarball.  Having to sign and 
produce 20 or 30 'releases' (even if some are merely snapshots of the docs) 
would be confusing to both users and the poor RMs.  -- justin
