Dear Dpkg developers,
I have proposed the patch below to the Debian Policy in August this year, to
stop recommending the direct use of install-docs for registering documents to
doc-base. Since it is about the use of dpkg triggers, could you confirm that
the patch is correct, ideally by seconding it ? The maintainer of doc-base has
been contacted independantly.
Have a nice week-end,
