Manual pages from the directory "generated" are missing in our package (man-pages-de 0.7). This affects a lot of pages, mostly from coreutils. The "install" target of upstream's Makefile installs those pages.

However, if you simply copy all pages from that directory, then there's at least one conflict. /usr/share/man/de/man1/groups.1 is already owned by the package "shadow" (they're not the same, btw).
This task depends upon

Thanks for updating the package, but the problem still persists. Run "makepkg -o" and cd to "src/manpages-de-0.9". You'll see a directory called "generated" in there. It contains a lot of man-pages but none of them are included in Arch's package. They *should* be included because upstream's Makefile installs them.
