debian-policy ( unstable; urgency=medium

  * Fix some errors in upgrading checklist.
    Thanks to several people for noticing these.
    Thanks to Jeremy Bicha for a patch.
  * Soften wording in upgrading checklist for removal of get-orig-source
    Thanks Helmut Grohne for the new wording.
  * Fix sample postinst in 9.1.2 to comply with new required permissions
    for /usr/local (Closes: #895136).
    Thanks to Niels Thykier for noticing the problem, and for the new
    sample script.
    - Reorder 9.1.2 so that details of the permissions requirement appear
      before the sample postinst.
      This ensures that the complexity of the sample postinst makes sense
      to the reader.
