Bug#147164: ping and new proposal

Remove the outdated /doc/docpolicy. Even the "current draft of the new
policy" is outdated and deprecated.

Instead of a whole policy manual which is outdated for a long time my
proposal is to just list a few things to consider on /doc.

Currently we have these items on /doc about the policy:

    Manual licenses comply with DFSG.
    Directory structure: filesystem, WWW, FTP.
    We use Docbook XML for our documents. Use of DebianDoc SGML is being phased out.
    Every document has one maintainer.

"Every document has one maintainer." seems to be not true since I
found this in debian/control:
Maintainer: Debian Documentation Project <debian-doc@lists.debian.org>

So just remove this item.

My proposal to list these items on /doc:

    Manual licenses comply with DFSG
    We use Docbook XML for our documents
    The sources should be at https://salsa.debian.org/ddp-team
    www.debian.org/doc/<manual-name> will be the official URL
    Please ask on debian-doc if you like to write a new document

Any objections on removing /doc/docpolicy?

regards Thomas
