Perfect, thanks! I was looking for a permantly updated URL for the
dpkg man pages, particularly deb(5), w/o needing to format and place
them on a website myself, to be used on places like
<https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Dpkg/DebSupport> or
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deb_(file_format)>. :)

I was going to ask also about the formatting of the man pages, but
just saw this is already listed as an item on the TODO list. :)
