Not all of the FHS will be used.
For what I am concerned, you can install your manpages into
/usr/share/man instead of /usr/man (all other man locations remain), but
the two locations are not incompatible, so there is no urgency to do
this if it is the only change in your package, just put it in the queue
and let it go.
This is not a call to upload new packages.
