Thank you for all the pointers in this email and the email before - and 
for kindly doing the amendments for me! I did notice the comment about 
the location of man pages, but couldn't figure out at which point in the 
process and in which script I was supposed to move them. I can see what 
is supposed to happen now and where, based on your changes.

I haven't been following closely enough the SBo mailing list I'm afraid. 
Are we in some sort of freeze at the moment until 14.2 is released - 
even when it comes to submitting new packages to the git repository?
