Package: www.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

Dear WWW team,

I think that we can be confident that DEP 5's URL will be:

(see http://bugs.debian.org/640737)

and that the debian-policy package will contain the documents in the
following files:


(see http://bugs.debian.org/646119)

I propose to discuss in this bug the changes needed on the Debian website to
publish DEP 5 when it will be accepted.

On the technical side, it looks like the following command in parts/7doc would
be sufficient to install the files.  Can somebody confirm ?

  install_policy_doc copyright-format-1.0 packaging-manuals . yes

On the WML side, it looks like english/doc/index.wml and
english/doc/devel-manuals.wml would need to be modified to list the document.

Am I forgetting something ?

There is no timeline, but I would like to preapre in advance that everything
can go smoothly once the DEP is accepted.

Have a nice day,

I just pushed the needed changes to the build process without the text
version, in order to keep our promise that the copyright version will be
available on the website as soon as the debian-policy package shipping
it will reach the archive (well a few hours later to be honest, since
the web site is “only” rebuilt six times a day).

If there is a demand to actually ship the text format, we'll ship it
once a consensus will be reached about its URL: it's painful to ship a
document in one place and move it later when there is a better idea,
since we need to take care of the old path (via redirection) on all our
mirrors, and bother our DSA to deploy those changes (we do it when we
need it, but we're happy to avoid it if possible).

The other part of the bug report (updating the DDP Developers' Manuals
page [1]) will be taken care of when the copyright-format will actually
be on the website (I already have a pending commit to get rid of the
MIME policy [#89038], so I won't forget, but if someone beats me there,
pretty please commit the MIME policy fix *before* updating the
copyright-format stuff on this page).
