Which manual are we talking about here?  debian packages should already
ship the man page and the DETAILS.gz.

are we talking about some of the things that we ship (kind of) in
gnupg-doc?  I asked about the data contained in debian's out-of-date
gnupg-doc package recently [0], but have gotten no response on that
thread, and the package was removed from testing about a year ago with
no complaints.  This makes me suspect it's not being actually used.

If there's a particular manual that we're not shipping but should be,
please tell me specifically which manual and where i should look for the
source.  I'm happy to make sure we ship it.

all the best,
