Dear WWW team,

I would like to ask for your thoughts about the URI for DEP 5.  In particular:

  - Would you like it to be in doc/packaging-manuals, or are other directories like
    doc/standards or even /standards welcome as well ?

  - The copyright-format specification is a single file.  Do you want it
    to be served as a recognisable file name, like copyright-format-1.0.html,
    or are file names like index.html or 1.0.html acceptable ?

  - Do you want the spec's file name to be the same on www.debian.org and in
    the debian-policy package ?

  - Shall the spec be installed using the same cron job as for the other sub-policies
    of the debian-policy package, or, because it is versionned, shall it be added
    directly to the webwml repository ?

Have a nice day,
