Package: debian-policy
Severity: normal


When writing the control files for Debian packages you must read the Debian
policy manual in conjunction with the details below and the list of fields for
the particular file.

-- end quote

'must read the Debian policy manual', but I *am* reading the Debian policy
manual.  Is this an artifact of the packaging-manual being absorbed?  Or should
it read 'packaging manual'?
