Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

I'm filing this bug report to avoid losing track of the discussion we've had in
July 2014 about merging the autopkgtest/DEP8 specification into Debian Policy.
The thread is archived starting from here:


I've posted draft patches implementing what was discussed in the thread at the
time; I'm attaching them to this message as patches.

There have been some requested format changes (see thread), which I didn't have
time to implement. They're now up for grabs, hurry up! :-)
