How to upgrade Debian Policy version


I have adopted geiser, and 6 months ago I had packaged 0.10 from
upstream[1]. Since then, I have been occupied unfortunately and
regrettably. Anyway, I am back!

Tracker[2] says the next most important thing is to bump Debian Policy
version. Upgrading checklist[3] doesn't seem very helpful to me right
away. Perhaps I should start with reading Policy Manual[4]?

It would be great if someone can point me in the right direction to
start the journey!

Meanwhile, I have begun reading what Debian recommends as steps to
upgrade the policy and hopefully I shall find out eventually!
