If tar is considered 'upsteam' then only the kernel is downstream.
Surely Debian should care about the quality of the man pages for
everything, especially in base debs.
However, I suppose its a catch-22. If the policy said that the base
utils had to have full man pages or else they wouldn't be included in
Debian, then I guess Debian wouldn't be unless it changed from Debian/GNU
Linux to Debian/Open BSD.
