Debian policy update (

Dear developers,

Debian policy has been uploaded today with the following changes:

 * An FHS exception has been granted for multiarch libraries.
   Permitting files to instead be installed to `/lib/triplet' and
   `/usr/lib/triplet' directories. [9.1.1]

 * Explicitly state that packages may not contain named pipes and should
   instead create them in postinst and remove them in prerm or postrm. [10.6]

 * `/sys' and `/selinux' directories are explicitly allowed as an
   exception to the FHS. [9.1.1]

Please read the full Debian Policy document for detail. 

A new lintian version should be available soon.

For the Debian Policy team,
Bill. <ballombe@debian.org>

Imagine a large red swirl here.
