5.8 Emacs lisp programs

   Please refer to the `Debian Emacs Policy' (documented in
   debian-emacs-policy.gz of the emacsen-common package) for details of
   how to package emacs lisp programs.

Would there be any objection to including the content of
debian-emacs-policy.gz into the policy itself, instead of this reference?

Bug#30036: Including subpolicies (emacs, menu etc) in policy

Summary: Proposed incorporating subpolicies into policy
document. Nobody seemed to like this much; a counter-proposal of
including the subpolicy docs in the debian-policy .deb gained more
support. Lots of concern about mixing of technical details (e.g. how
to write a menu-method) with policy (e.g. what is the menu heirarchy).

Discussion: This seems to have come to consensus and agreement, as the
policy .deb currently contains mime-policy, menu-policy, and
perl-policy. No emacs-policy, but I'd guess that audience is small
enough there's no problem there. Presumably subpolicy writers will
submit their doc when it seems appropriate.

Action: close.
