[Pkg-gnupg-maint] gnupg-doc in debian?

Hi Don (and others on pkg-gnupg-maint)--

I'm hoping to help freshen up the gnupg-doc package in debian.

I notice that gnupg-doc is owned by you, but there is an svn repository
of it in the pkg-gnupg-maint team svn repository.

We're in the process of converting all of pkg-gnupg-maint's svn to git,
and gnupg-doc is the last one left.  Are you averse to moving from svn
to git?  Are you interested in seeing gnupg-doc under the
pkg-gnupg-maint umbrella explicitly?

The package looks like it's seen very little activity -- it seems likely
that it's out-of-date, too, though it's not clear to me how it used to
be updated, if ever.  debian/copyright suggests that the tarball was
actually assembled by hand by James Troup from

Today, that URL redirects to https://www.gnupg.org/documentation/, and
that documentation appears to be stored in git, and actively updated

 git clone git://git.gnupg.org/git-docs

What do you think is the best approach to dealing with this package in
debian going forward?
