Dear Sergio adn TTS members,

This is great news. Thanks, also, for spending the time reading Debian's
to get even a simple web page up.

I agree TTS should upload a smaller festival-doc src package which packages
only speech-tools-doc
in the interim. If you create a TTS git repo for festival-doc.git for the
remaining part of this package
we can all have a look at the 'debian/control' file and its interaction
with festival proper's control
file. Debian has some instructions at creating repo
https://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git which I have just used to
create bare repos for Czech voices stuff. (I haven't filled them since this
is Xmas/Summer holiday season
here 'Down Under' and I need some spare time to do this.) It should be
pretty easy to create and fill
a festival-doc.git repo.

I believe that the TTS group already made its intentions clear for adopting
festival-doc but it might be
helpful once you fill a staging repo (festival-doc.git) to put a link to it
in the bug log for the adoption
of festival-doc so anyone in the Debian community can see the progress till
two packages (festival and the now smaller festival-doc) are submitted for

The Debian Policy manual covers how code moves from one package to another
in the replaces/breaks etc.
functionality of the control file. If you need another set of eyes on this
I can look at it once we have a festival-doc.git available for everyone to
look at.

The changelog of the smaller festival-doc.git will close the adoption bug.
You will need to add
you name to the maintainer field. If you would like any of us also as
uploaders just ask 'off list'.

A Happy New Year to the TTS group.

Sorry for the rushed email,
best regards,
