Default Bug#690293: Policy 5.6.24: Checksums-{SHA1,SHA256} are required by the archive software

Package: debian-policy
Severity: minor

The Checksums-{SHA1,SHA256} fields were optional when they were
documented in Policy[1], but by now dak requires Checksums-{SHA1,SHA256}
to be present and listing all files in both .dsc and .changes files.

I suggest replacing both 'should's with 'must' in the paragraph quoted
