Bug#264589: debman program

debian-goodies package includes a program called debman which
dynamically extracts a manpage from a package.  I don't know if that
would be useful here; speedwise, it is probably much better to create
a directory hierarchy to separate packages, and languages, with some
simple web search frontend.  Then the problem is simply one of
syncing with updated packages periodically, or "noticing" package
updates.  (And, are all distributions' manpages available?  Or just
stable?)  I guess that deserves another directory hierarchy.  So we
could have something like:


Actually, a "pool" design might make sense (not that manpages are
big) to avoid multiple copies of the manpages when a given version of
a package is in multiple distributions simultaneously.

Though I'd mention it.

Clear skies,
