The man page for dpkg is dated April 12, 1998. Mention of apt would be
appropriate now. Also perhaps installing a link for a manpage of dpkg.conf
to view the dpkg man page would be great.
Looking over the bug database for dpkg, I was surprised. There are alot of
bugs for this package. This is one of a small handful of packages that
Debian can not possibly work without. I understand as well there is added
complexity because the software is being developed by Debian. I don't know
the history of the people actually working on it and packaging it.
I hope you are able to get the help you need in updating this package and
the development resources to improve it. I am not sure what I can do to
help, but if you posted a wishlist somewhere I and others might be able to
