there are some locale that are unowned under /usr/share/man. These
directories need to be owned by a package. Many of the more used
locales are owned by man/man-pages, but some more exotic are not. It
looks like there are about 63 unowned directories coming from the
following locale

ca da eo es et gl hu id nb nl nn pt pt_BR sk sr sv tr zh_CN zh_TW


The current suggestion is to have the package with the man pages to
own these, for example the subtree under /usr/share/man/sv/ shoule be
owned by


This doesn't seem like a clean or scaling solution and I think it
would be better to have these owned by man/man-pages. This probably
requires a new guideline, could you please push a matching guideline
out, or perhaps just clarify what's there, as I think the intention of
the guideline is indeed that the man* packages should own all such
