Pierre (and others),

Below is the message I just sent to debian-devel, but forgot to cross-post to 
debian-sgml & debian-doc. I hope it addresses your questions.

 You're quite right. Ardo & I (with helpful input from Adam DiCarlo) have been 
 working on the policy and the infrastructure packages for the last few months. 

 I have the first policy draft complete, but due to the fact that I'm in the 
 process of relocating and job-hunting (and am using someone else's floppy-free 
 Mac to do webmail) I don't presently have the time or the means to check-in or 
 upload any files. 

 Early next week Ardo & I should have both of our relative stuff ready and 
 uploaded. At that time I'll post an announcement to debian-devel.
