Bug#538665: debian-policy: "Info documents" section is outdated

Package: debian-policy
Severity: normal

Section 12.2, "Info documents", contains outdated information.  Nowadays
info files are installed via a dpkg trigger provided by the install-info
package, and maintainer scripts should not invoke install-info at all.
Actually, packages using dh_installinfo will not call install-info if
built with debhelper >= 7.2.17.

Any section information must be placed in the info files themselves,
rather than passed as arguments to install-info.
