Both only have version 3.7.1.0. How comes that the PTS has a newer version
than all the other sources?

http://incoming.debian.org/

It seems to me that it is unreasonable for the PTS to be updated before the policy package actually hits the mirrors. There is a period of time after a package leaves incomming but before the mirrors are updated when the package is difficult to
obtain.

It is bad enough that Debian-policy 3.7.1 does not indicate meeting itself, but now the PTS is stating that debian-policy should be updated to a version policy newer than "Latest Version" (as the general information section states).
