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Remove the outdated /doc/docpolicy.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policy" is outdated and deprecated.
Instead of a whole policy manual which is outdated for a long time my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 <email@example.com>
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?
