Bug#184064: debian-policy: [PROPOSAL] Every window manager should provide an alternative to the x-window-manager.1 manpage

Package: debian-policy
Severity: normal

Currently, policy says:


12.8.4 Packages providing a window manager

Packages that provide a window manager should declare in their control
data that they provide the virtual package x-window-manager. They
should also register themselves as an alternative for
/usr/bin/x-window-manager, with a priority calculated as follows:


Currently, some window managers like IceWM or Sawfish, provide an
alternative to x-window-manager.1. It would be consistent to add this
to the policy since window managers provide an alternative to
x-window-manager as well.

I've sent a patch for Debhelper (See #85963) but it won't be applied
as long as Policy don't say so.
