 Priority:  normal                          |   Milestone:  7.0                          
Component:  Book                            |     Version:  6.3                          
 Severity:  normal                          |    Keywords:

 http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/6.3/chapter06/man-db.html uses
 http://ccb.club.fr/man/man-fr-1.58.0.tar.bz2 as an example of manual pages
 that can be copied to /usr/share/man/''language_code'' unchanged. However,
 this is a very old version of French manual pages. Newer French manual
 pages are available at http://manpagesfr.free.fr/download/man-pages-
 fr-2.40.0.tar.bz2, but they are in UTF-8.

 I propose to use updated French manual pages as an example of what should
 be done with UTF-8 manual pages, instead of the current Spanish example.
 The benefit is that a workaround for a packaging bug is not needed,
 because there is no packaging bug.

 German manual pages from http://www.infodrom.org/projects/manpages-
 de/download/manpages-de-0.5.tar.gz can be used as an example of manual
 pages that can be just copied.
