Bug#569174: debian-policy: Changelog date is not in RFC822 format.

Package: debian-policy
Severity: normal

Hello everybody,

in Policy § 4.4, one can read: “The date must be in RFC822 format”. However,
RFC822 dates use only two numbers for the years. The phrase should probably
refer to another standard, like RFC 2822 or posterior, in which years are
indicated with four numbers, like in our changelogs.

Have a nice day,
