     Andrew Pollock. Andreas Metzler provided the wording, though it was
     modified during inclusion.                              (Closes: #203145).
   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: Minor grammatical correction in section 9.4",
     thanks to Eric Evans. I rejected the proposed change, instead I went
     over the whole policy document and removed all he/she/him/her
     constructs before the gender police jump all over me.   (Closes: #273122).
   * Bug fix: "XSI:ism in prerm and postinst", thanks to David Weinehall
                                                             (Closes: #260092).
   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: please clarify section 12.7.", thanks to

     section 12.3 does not allow one to ignore section 12.7  (Closes: #276953).
   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: should not ship generated files in source
     archive, and should clean them from the tree", thanks to Branden
     Robinson                                                 (Closes: #284967).
   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: Detailed description of maintainer script
     calls (Section 6.5) is incomplete", thanks to Nikolaus Schulz 
     and Thomas Hood. What happens when error unwinding itself runs into
     problems is perhaps not discussed as completely as it should be.
                                                              (Closes: #286549).
   * Bug fix: " &quot;command -v&quot; example needs tweaking",
     thanks to Thomas Hood. Instead of the massively complex shenanigans
     suggested in the bug report, just use which. which lives in an
     essential package, so can be used in the preinst of packages.
                                                              (Closes: #291026).
   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: please clarify/loosen the policy on rewriting
     history", thanks to Frank Küster. Since this was not really a
     directive, but merely an expression of an opinion, moved it into an
     informative footnote.                                    (Closes: #290270).
   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: virtual package request: mpd-client", thanks
     to Eric Wong                                             (Closes: #270020).
   * Bug fix: "[ACCEPTED 2005/02/04]: "libexec", or use of "lib" for
     binaries in lib* packages", thanks to Junichi Uekawa 
                                                               (Closes: #146023).

   * Bug fix: "debian-policy: erroneous enumeration in prebuilt policy.*
     files", thanks to Nikolaus Schulz. I am hoping that this shall go away
     when we rebuild.                                          (Closes: #286553).
   * Bug fix: "please make names of alternate versions links", thanks to
     Robert Cheramy. Added HTTPPATH elements that should provide the URL's
     as well as the hyperlinks.                                 (Closes: #308886).
   * Bug fix: " Misspelling in Policy Manual", thanks to
     Roberto C. Sanchez Various spelling errors were also corrected in a
