Bug#234286: debian-policy: log file should be in packages' file list

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

Idea: programs that will make log files should be required to list the basic
log file (before rotations, etc.) so that dpkg -L package will list
them, and dpkg -S will find them.

In http://groups.google.com/groups?th=34676cd8d1b22da1 we see we were
just lucky there were other files with the same name.  If the log file
used a slightly different name than any of the other files in the
package, we wouldn't be able to find what package made it.
