file a bug report to where ?  There are many binary packages which have info files 
and not the corresponding format suited for printing. 

One thing I see is that Debian is unifying its documentation format in HTML, and
any other format is optional. i.e. Debian doesn't really care about printed manuals.

#It is requested somewhere that when something needs submitting loads of bugs,
