There is no such consensus but, from my point of view, and in order to
avoid out of date manpages or duplicated efforts, translated manpages
should be included in the original package.

The manpages-XX packages (and I maintain the -es) should be kept as reduced
as possible and should tend to disappear. Users not wanting manpages (or
po's) for that matter can reduce their hard-disk space through apt/dpkg
mechanims. IMHO _only_ if we had a general repository for Debian
localization stuff (as KDE/GNOME do) we should encourage translators to use
these generic manpages. Not having one, it's more feasible to ask
translators to coordinate with upstream its inclusion.
