Hi Manoj,

Could you confirm that the Arch repository is the correct location?
The last chnagelog is from:

    2006-10-02  Manoj Srivastava  <srivasta@debian.org>

According to checkout:

    baz register-archive http://arch.debian.org/arch/dbnpolicy/lenny/
    baz get debian-policy@lists.debian.org--lenny/debian-policy--devel--3.7

Is this correct?

A wishlist: Could git be considered instead of baz, because git's
development seems to advance fast and it would be more easy to use (just
one "clone" command to get archive).
