Syntax issues in Policy Manual


On this page: http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-f-Files one can see the following sentence under "5.6.21 Files"

"In all cases the part of the field contents on the same line as the field name is empty."

This syntax is rather garbled. I'd like to propose a fix for that entire paragraph;

"The 'Files:' field contains information for files included with the package. The rest of the 'Files:' line must be empty. Immediately following the 'Files:' line is a list containing one file per line with each line being indented with a single space and fields separated by spaces."

It might be nice to have a wiki for the Manual then one can make changes to the text without having to have a committer bit.

	Warm regards,
