Is it a coordinated change or is something you request as a simple user?

Pages removed following the request from bug #506515 haven't been added
to manpages-dev after more than one year, and users are complaining that 
they are missing (see #519781, #562148). We are probably going to 
reintroduce them in one of the next upload if no action is taken from 
the manpages-dev side, so that squeeze's users have such manpages (even
if outdated).
