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