Well, that addresses *how*. Close enough.
I just pulled down policy 18.104.22.168 (the latest as far as I can tell),
and I find 12 occurrences of "hard" in that file.
It is true that section 5.6 forbids hard links in a _source_ package,
but recall that we are talking about .deb files.
I can find only two other references to hard links:
* 11.7.3 forbids hard links to conffiles
* 13.1 says you shouldn't make hard links to man pages
Is there really some passage in policy that forbids hard links that
I'm missing? Is there a newer policy document somewhere?
