That's not the bug, the bug is the yaml file not being present at the
destination of the link[1]. Thanks for noticing; my email here is
reporting it in the right place (MFT set accordingly)

WWW team: the virtual-package-names-list file within the debian-policy
source recently was converted from .txt to .yaml. There is a copy of the
older .txt at [1], but no copy of the .yaml. Whatever process populates
that path needs to please be updated. Thanks!

Or alternatively: if linking to arbitrary files in [1] is to be
deprecated we could change the link in the debian-policy document
instead.
