Package: dpkg

dpkg(1) says:

       It should not be used by package  maintainers  wishing  to
       understand  how  dpkg  will  install  their packages.  The
       descriptions of what dpkg does when installing and  remov­
       ing  packages  are  particularly inadequate.  For detailed
       information about this, please refer to the  Package  Man­
       agement System topic under debian-faq in the GNU Info sys­
       tem.  For information about creating Debian packages,  see
       the  Debian  Package  Management  Tools  topic in the same

joey@silk:~>zgrep -i 'Debian Package Management Tools' /usr/share/info/*
joey@silk:~>zgrep -i 'Package Management System' /usr/share/info/*
joey@silk:~>zgrep -i 'debian-faq' /usr/share/info/*

This should be changed to point to documentation that actually exists.
I suggest the Packaging Manual and the Developer's Reference.
