Removing manpages is a broken concept: They are needed to actually
use the programs. Additional documentation may well be moved into
another package, but not manpages. That's similar to removing the
--help part from the binaries to make them smaller.

I can understand that, as I am heavy user of man pages, but there was
a pressure to make distro smaller.

Splitting man pages to separate package is even worse than -lang
packages required by base package. No pros.
