Hello everybody,

in my understanding, most of the the anchor names are derived from id
attributes and not autogenerated, so we can keep them constant during the
conversion.  Apart from the footnote anchors, for which I think we do not
manage stability from one version to the other with DebianDoc, this leaves 57
(grep -P 'name="s\d' policy.html/*l | wc -l) autogenerated anchors names.  We
could chose to hardcode them as ids, but I like the idear to redirect them as
David proposed, as it will allow more meaningful anchor names. 

Have a nice week-end,
