The GCC includes the auto generated manual pages for C++. Most other hand written manuals are part of venerable `man-pages` including C, POSIX and Linux APIs. The manual pages of GCC C++ implemenation can be opened with "man C++Intro", "man std::vector", "man std::smart_ptr" and so on. The intro page states that there should also be more general category pages:

Namespace_std A listing of the contents of std::.
Namespace___gnu_cxx A listing of the contents of __gnu_cxx::.
Containers An introduction to container classes.
Sequences Linear containers.
Assoc_containers Key-based containers.
Iterator_types Programatically distinguishing iterators/pointers.
Intro_functors An introduction to function objects, or functors.
Arithmetic_functors Functors for basic math.
Binder_functors Functors which "remember" an argument.
Comparison_functors Functors wrapping built-in comparisons.
Func_ptr_functors Functors for use with pointers to functions.
Logical_functors Functors wrapping the Boolean operations.
Member_ptr_functor Functors for use with pointers to members.
Negation_functors Functors which negate their contents.
SGIextensions A list of the extensions from the SGI STL subset.

I cannot open them, with the exception of SGIextensions which is installed.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 10.2.0-4

Steps to reproduce:
1.) # pacman -S base-devel
2.) $ man Namespace_std
No manual entry for Namespace_std

I'm not sure if this a packaging or upstream issue.
Thank you

Is this still an issue with gcc 11.2.0-2 in [testing]?
