I think this is a bug, because those po files are named man_ because 
they are translations of the manual pages, not because of the Mandingo 

"Similar" thing happens with 
https://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po/bos_DE (and all other 
bos_XX links in https://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po/): they are 
translations files of the boswars package, having two translations 
templates, one named     boswars_version_xx.po.gz and another one named  
boswars_version_bos_xx.po.gz, so that "bos" is misdetected as Bosnian 

I don't know *where* is the bug, though: it can be in the i2p package 
because of wrong structure or naming o files (sorry, I don't know the 
related policy), in the l10n scripts* that gather the material 
(https://salsa.debian.org/l10n-team/dl10n/) or in our code that process 
that data in webwml repo. Hence I'm CC'ing debian-i18n and 
debian-l10n-devel for the case anybody knows and it's easy to fix. If 
not, a quick workaround could be to exclude the problematic packages 
from our stats (exclude them from the dl10n scripts so no material is 

Kind regards,
