Package: wiki.debian.org
Severity: normal

In the ReduceDebian page one reads:

  Note: There is also a purgelocales package that will remove the man
  pages, but that destroys the package management and package building

The note is outdated: purgelocales was an experimental hack which had a
short life.  The current package name is "localepurge".  It does not
"destroy" the pkg management and building system.  The man page and the
summary put it clearly:

  Please note, that this tool is a hack which is *not* integrated with
  Debian's package management system and therefore is not for the faint
  of heart. This program interferes with the Debian package management
  and does provoke strange, but usually harmless, behaviour of programs
  related with apt/dpkg like dpkg-repack, reportbug, etc.

Moreover, the suggested instructions

  rm -rf /usr/share/man/??
  rm -rf /usr/share/man/??_*

Have the same drawbacks.
