Hi Chuck,

I know that org-drill has its own webpage with good documentation. The point 
is, that the Debian maintainer (or Fedora, Gentoo, ...) just takes the org-
mode tarball and packages everything found in there. It would be an extra 
burden for the maintainer to go out to every single contrib site and somehow 
add the documentation in the package.

It would be much easier IMHO, if the org-mode developers would not only 
distribute the code of contribs but also their documentation. I would even say 
that distributing code without documentation is kind of a bug.

It would even be an extra advantage, if you could encourage the contrib 
developers to provide documentation in info format.
