Okay, I've finally checked out an updated copy of maint-guide.en.dbk
so I can give a further proofreading patch.

By the way, last time I corrected an "old Roman saying" to an "old
Latin saying", since it was a quote (in Latin) from one particular
writer; this time you've added another "old Latin saying".  In this
case is happens to also be a genuine "old Roman saying", in that the
Romans regarded it as traditional!

I don't see this online.

I've inserted the word "(source)" before the first use of the term
"package name".  By the way, while it's certainly a requirement, I
don't see any rule in policy prohibiting a new source package called
"dpkg" or "3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510..." -
the rules about uniqueness and finite length are only stated for
binary packages!

I assume you mean "inadvertent", which would fit in context.
