Why would you assume that?  I'm curious.

AFAICT, they do just what is done in the Fedora bug, add symlinks in
the man page dir (/usr/share/man/man1).

(Also, it's not Ubuntu that should be credited with the attention to
detail here.  It's Debian. :)

You should be able to comment on the bug even though it's closed.
I've done that numerous times myself and I don't think it required any
special privileges in bugzilla to do so.
