I'm not seeing that with the copy of policy.txt.gz which I generated myself.
Looks like debiandoc2text on Manoj's system used a different, Latin1 locale
and replaced Š for © on my Latin2 system it did no such (foolish) thing.
For the record, Š is a large latin letter S with a hacek/caron. :)
We should probably restrict the build process with LANG=C or something like
