yes that's quite a mess. Please cf.:
Currently, the discussion goes on towards the bugs
#650737 (Debian Policy 3.9.2: Point format URL to www.debian.org) and
#649813 (Lintian: Final URL for DEP5)
I would assume that this could be lacking consensus among the developers how
to treat this, but it seems it would be a good solution to just fill in the
expected URL: http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/copyright-format/1.0
(however, Lintian accepts this w/o final slash). What's the latest in this discussion?
