Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist


The machines I use to develop Debian run stable, with unstable

While I can configure /etc/apt/preferences to install debian-policy
from unstable (and I've done it for every previous machine I had) it
will be a lot cleaner just to install the package from backports.

debian-policy has only one dependency and it is present in stable.

I've never done a backport myself, but if you policy folks don't see any
problem with the idea I'm willing to do the backport myself.
