I thought about this as well, but since roadmap.html is _always_ built
this would need a net connection (for "cvs co") only for building htdocs.
This whole concept of using a file in different CVS tree from where it
lives opens a can of worms :-/. If I update htdocs I do not necessarily
update current-src. I cannot use make's ability to track outdated files
because CVS does not preserve timestamps. NETBSDSRCDIR does not
necessarily point at current sources.
I actually think it would be better to duplicate the file ROADMAP in
htdocs. If changes really happen rarely this should be feasible, we
could even provide a make-target for this and put a short note at the
top of the file.
