Bug#896024: www.debian.org: Invalid footnote links in the online version of the Debian Policy Manual v4.1.4.1

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

While reading the online version of the Debian Policy Manual v4.1.4.1
I could see that the footnote links are not working correctly. Multiple
parts of the text uses the same id name and conflicts when you try to
reach them.

An example is when I go to a paragraph of the section 5 ending with the
phrase below and click the footnote link number 7:

> For example, the following parts are in sorted order from earliest to
> latest: ~~, ~~a, ~, the empty part, a. [7]

Doing this incorrectly leads you to an unrelated part of the manual,
regarding a rationale of the section number 4, while the correct part
is the following:

> [7] One common use of ~ is for upstream pre-releases. For example,
> 1.0~beta1~svn1245 sorts earlier than 1.0~beta1, which sorts earlier
> than 1.0.

The link I'm using is https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/.

PS: This problem doesn't happen when I read the offline version Debian
