Debian Policy released

Hello everyone,

I just pushed version of the Debian Policy Manual and related
documents to sid.

Here are the significant normative changes from the previously announced
release of Policy (4.4.0):

    A package control file must not have more than one ``Vcs-<type>``

    If the package is maintained in multiple version control systems,
    the maintainer should specify the one that they would prefer other
    people to use as the basis for proposing changes to the package.

9.10 & 11.5
    doc-base registration is now optional, from being recommended.

    State some syntactical restrictions on the ``Files:`` field.
    Wildcards are required to match the contents of directories, and
    the space character separates patterns and cannot be escaped.
