    Seconded: Guillem Jover <guillem at debian.org>
    Closes: #446712
  * Improve the documentation of maintainer script actions for diversions
    in the informative appendix to allow for addition of a new diversion
    on upgrade and handle error cases correctly.  Thanks to Olivier Berger
    for the report and Raphaël Hertzog for the review.  (Closes: #483418)
  * Clarify the meaning of architecture restrictions on build dependencies

  * Add --wildcards to the sample tar command in appendix B.1 for
    extracting the package copyright file, adjusting for new tar option
    behavior.  Thanks, Yan Morin.  (Closes: #503685)
  * Reword the requirement that maintainer scripts exit with a zero
    status on success to avoid double-negatives.
  * Include the full name of each menu category rather than only the
    portion relative to the parent heading to be clearer in long category
    lists.  Thanks, Christoph Berg.  (Closes: #511804)
  * Build-Depend on texlive rather than tetex-extra.  texlive appears to
    be sufficient for how Policy uses debiandoc-sgml and pulls in far
    fewer packages.
  * Remove the postinst and prerm scripts.  doc-base registration is now
    handled by triggers and no longer required and removal of /usr/doc
    links was completed long ago.
  * Reference GPL-2 rather than the GPL symlink in debian/copyright.
