The Debian Policy itself, which is the main document distributed in the
debian-policy package but not the only document, does not mention the DEP at

While I have also objected having both works co-distributed, I now think
that the debian-policy package is a good place because we can take advantage
of it to easily publish the DEP and its revisions with the same mechanisms
as the sub-policies in “http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/”;,
and because the policy changes process is well suited to the maintenance
of a standard specification.

Have a nice day,
