We have not changed the semantics compared to the current documentation (that
includes the "noawait" variants that were not present in the original
proposal).  The documentation in the Policy brings together informations from
deb-triggers(5), dpkg-trigger(1) and /usr/share/doc/dpkg-dev/triggers.txt.gz.
Most of the text is a direct copy or adaptation from these three documents,
plus an extra paragraph listing the Dpkg states, taken from dpkg(1).  From
/usr/share/doc/dpkg-dev/triggers.txt.gz, I left out the historical details
(plan for transition, etc.), implementation details, discussions regarding apt,
etc., basically most of the text after the section "File triggers".

The latest patches are in the following message in the BTS.  If you had time
to review them, that would be great !
