The main point is that you should fix the double-redirect from man page -> DETAILS -> "Manual".

You can word it better than I did, to make the point that the manual is also available different formats. At the bottom of the man page, it already mentions the "Texinfo manual" and "`info gnupg`", so perhaps you can point to that.

It's not clear that "GnuPG manual" refers to a system-installed document, when the system already has man pages.
