Where are translated man pages packaged?


There is currently no consensus whether translated man pages should
be shipped along with original man pages or within manpages-xx packages.
Unfortunately this leads to conflicts when a translation is first
shipped by the latter, then incorporated into the former (e.g. when
it becomes part of upstream tarball).

Some developers are reluctant to include French translated man pages and
ask me to ship them in manpages-fr.  How can I make them change their
mind?  Is there a consensus that translated man pages must go with
original man pages?  Are exceptions needed for some packages?
