Bug#485776: debian-policy: Adding graphical flowcharts for maintainer scripts invocation would help understand the process

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist


The "Package maintainer scripts and installation procedure" chapter of the Debian policy describes in details the process of packages' scripts, but in a non-formal way, which makes it difficult to understand.

I think that adding figures with flowcharts would be great.

Reuse of http://women.debian.org/wiki/English/MaintainerScripts should help a great deal, I suppose.

Hope this will happen.

Best regards,
