Hi all,

here is the relevant extract:

> s/I assume that//
> s/$/!/

Does it mean that not being extra is a bug, that the persons with
write access to the `override' file will systematicly set the priority
of -dbg packages to `extra', or both?

How can we document all of this better? Would a bug against the Policy
be appropriate?

Have a nice day,
