Let's send patches to debian-policy (rst file is your friend :-)

As I posted before, now debian-policy package uses Sphinx. It means, you can edit and send patches for Debian Policy easier than ever. Get source (install devscripts package and exec 'debcheck debian-policy')  and dig into policy directory. There are several rst files for each chapter.



Open it with your favorite editor and edit (Perhaps most of editors support reStructuredText, and if not, check its extension).


rst file is more friendly than old policy.xml file :-)

Then, commit and create patches with 'git format-patch'. Not much complicated, right?
