"info gnupg" works for me based on the debian package, and shows the
gnupg info pages.

We don't ship the PDF at the moment.  do you think it adds anything to
ship the PDF as well as the info pages?

traditionally, we have shipped some data that is also available on the
web as debian packages (e.g. debian-policy) to facilitate offline work.

the main elements shipped in gnupg-doc are:

  o The GNU Privacy Handbook
  o Replacing PGP 2.x with GnuPG
  o GnuPG mini-HOWTO

Do you think that these things are not useful for people in offline
scenarios?  Should we stop shipping one or more of those references?
Are there other references that you think we should ship?
