Bug#534638: debian-policy: Section about Info documents needs to be updated

Package: debian-policy
Severity: normal

Since the upload of install-info to sid, packages installing info
documentation should no more call install-info in their postinst.
It is now automatically done by the file trigger provided by the
install-info package.

You should however explain that info-files must have the required
so that they can be registered in the info directory file automatically.
Bugs have been filed about this, example:

See http://wiki.debian.org/Transitions/DpkgToGnuInstallInfo for more info
on this transition.
