Well, lets speak about numbers:

Please be not fooled by the number of installations but consider the
number for "vote" (the number of people who use this package regularly).
You might probably know all these seven users and can ask them
personally about their internet connection.  So yes, the documentation
packages exist for the very reason you were giving in theory.  However,
in practice of this actual case gnumed-doc it's actually not that much
to download even through a modem.  Moreover if you ask me:  The current
quality of the local documentation does not make a good user experience
- I would not like to point users to this, thought.

There are two options of handling for me:

   1. Dropping gnumed-doc (at least for the next couple of releases -
      it would make extra manual work for ftpmaster to remove a package
      just to add it again next week or so).
   2. Waiting for the next release(s) until you fixed the docu to an
      acceptable state (regarding a good user experience).

Which option would you prefer (or would you suggest a 3rd option?)

Kind regards
