Right, if upstream provides/maintains (!) man page translations, I see
no problem with that (note that my quick draft for the text carefully
avoids to fix a means). However, there are large upstream projects[1]
which have no idea about man pages lest their translation, and in
Debian every programm is supposed to have a man page.
