Then let me ask another question:

Are there plans to get rid of all stuff that is debian-related and not

Man-pages which tell debian-stuff, e.g. apt_preferences?

I would like to have man pages that are smaller, but only include
stuff which is actually relevant for apt4suse, nor for Debians apt.

Well I guess we have all become de-facto smoke testers anyway.
