	The packaging manual is supposed to be a part of dpkg
 documentation, and should be re-uploaded soon.  The problem is that
 the new dpkg containing the packaging manual has not been uploaded;
 and the manual was removed from the archive (well, since there is
 still sources for the packaging manual in the pool, we could have
 left it in an technically not violated the GPL)

	When packaging manual re-emerges, the recommendation should
 come back again.
