Missing man pages?

Hello, When I install the latest WANdisco git-man package on Ubuntu, it's pretty much an empty package. The payload includes a few directories but not the man pages themselves. Looking through the repos, I think this has been this way for a while. Any plans to include the man pages sometime soon?

Git falls in the category of distributed source code management tools. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server. . This package provides reference documentation for use by the 'man' utility and the 'git help' command.

Thank you! Long time user of WANdisco products (both OpenSource and Enterprise) and happy to see these Linux repos available for so many Linux platforms. Any plans for RHEL 8 repos soon?

FYI, what we've found is that the only platform broken for our Git man pages is Debian/Ubuntu. Turns out that platform has been changing things quite rapidly and without any negative feedback. So we're going to have to redesign the packaging and it's going to take some time. Sorry. As for RHEL 8 - perhaps next time we publish but it won't be included in the current publishing going on now (for 2.23.0). Cheers.
