In your opinion, why are these man pages shipped by manpages-fr
and not by their respective packages?

   arch.1 basename.1 bash.1 cat.1 chgrp.1 chmod.1 chown.1 cksum.1
   cmp.1 comm.1 cp.1 csplit.1 cut.1 date.1 dd.1 df.1 diff.1 dir.1
   dircolors.1 dirname.1 du.1 echo.1 env.1 expand.1 expr.1 false.1

Given that some DD do not want to ship translated man pages, I see no
difference in putting them in manpages-XX and managing them outside of
