Bug#1026874: awscli installs a 5 million line manpage

Package: awscli
Version: 2.9.9-1
Severity: normal

Just making sure this is recorded:

The aws(1) man page installed by awscli 2.9.9-1 is not useful.  Ideally it
should be split up in to per service pages, e.g. aws-vpc(1), aws-ec2(2), etc.
for all services (some services already have their own pages, but most don't.)
But until then, it should be replaced by something more along the lines of the
`aws help` output.

$ ls -lh /usr/share/man/man1/aws.1.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 17M Dec 22 14:15 /usr/share/man/man1/aws.1.gz

doom:~$ time man aws 2> /dev/null | wc -l
man aws 2> /dev/null  134.93s user 17.01s system 191% cpu 1:19.53 total
