Well, there are many upstreams rejecting Debian's patches outright, saying
manpages are obsolete and redundant with any of:

/me still secretly hopes info pages go away.

 From a usability point of view there's nothing that beats man pages.

I see your 1000 and raise it 1000000. Personally, I think that Debian
have done a great service to the broader community by their insistence
on man pages for every package.

So long as it's not a man page that tells you to go read the info page.
