Since it's a generic rule that "*-bf" packages should not contain
manpages, I'm of the opinion that a new rule should be added to
lintian, rather than adding overrides to all *-bf packages.

Further more, since I don't think the new debian-installer is using
those *-bf packages, but uses udeb's instead, those *-bf packages may
be completely obsolete already.

Did you discuss the issue first with the lintian maintainer and the bf
team ?
