Package: debian-policy
Version: 3.8.4.0
Severity: normal

  Hi,

  At this end of "10.2 Libraries", there are several lines about including la
files in binary packages, in particular:
    Packages that use libtool to create shared libraries should include the .la
    files in the -dev package
This is in contradiction to the current release goal
http://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals/LAFileRemoval

  I think that policy must be adapted to reflect the current position of Debian
on this subject.

  Regards,
    Vincent

     provide some examples.  (Closes: #175202)

     that terminology consistently, and change possibly confusing
     references to fields in control files to use "control field"
     uniformly.
