Debian Policy planned for 2012-09-04

I plan on uploading version of the debian-policy package on
2012-09-04.  The target for this release is to incorporate accumulated
fixes that catch Policy up to current behavior and current practices.
Since we're in release freeze at the moment, I don't intend to pursue, for
this release, changes that contradict current practice except for the
implementation of the Technical Committee ruling on the
build-arch and build-indep targets.

If anyone has any Policy bugs that they feel meet that criteria and would
like to resolve before the next upload, now is the time to try to make
forward progress on them.

I think the following Policy bugs meet that criteria and have proposed
wording and are just waiting for additional seconds:

#106073 recommend installing <package> docs into /usr/share/doc/<package>/
#542288 Versions for native packages, NMU's, and binary only uploads
#640263 Clarify 9.9 - Environment variables
#648271 11.8.3 says xterm passes -e option straight to exec
#671355 [debconf] document escape capability
