did you notice that the man-pages package recently became non-free?
The Open Group and IEEE "contributed" POSIX manpages which were added
as of version 1.65 of man-pages.  Distribution is permitted but no
modification, hence incompatible with the ideas of Free Software.

Here's the official announcement <http://linuxpr.com/releases/6599.html>
