The Debian Menu sub-policy
Chapter 1 - About this document


This document is distributed as the menu-policy files in the Debian package debian-policy. It is also available from the Debian web mirrors at /doc/packaging-manuals/menu-policy/.

This document has been extracted and separated from the Menu package to:

  1. Increase the visibility of the Menu sub policy

  1. Reduce the coupling between policy and implementation. If this separation is not made, every time we want to change menu policy, we have to arrange to get the maintainer to release a new version of the package, even if the package has not otherwise changed. It also involves yet another layer, making the policy changes that much harder to implement.
