I have now documented the Contents indices and the diffs
as well, mostly (sans the exact format we use for the
patches), and Translation indices. Now we're basically
only missing details, it is fairly complete otherwise
(i.e. we should have mentioned every file and field
currently in use, but may not have explained all of
them completely).

We now have documented

	dists/$DIST/Release (and InRelease, Release.gpg)
	dists/$DIST/$COMP/binary-$ARCH/Packages
	dists/$DIST/$COMP/source/Sources
	dists/$DIST/$COMP/Contents-$ARCH.gz
	dists/$DIST/$COMP/i18n/{Index,Translation-*.bz2}
	*.diff/Index *.diff/%Y-%m-%d-%H%M.%S.gz

The other Release files have been omitted, as they are not
used anywhere. We are only missing udeb content files and
packages files now, which are just small subsentences.

In a few months, I'd like to rework this in DocBook form,
and submit it to debian-policy for inclusion into official
Policy, as a sub-policy like copyright-format.
