Package: bzr
Version: 2.7.0+bzr6622-2
Severity: normal

I noticed warnings from update-alternatives when installing your

AFAICS the problem is that the bzr package inadvertently still contains
/usr/share/man/man1/bzr.1.gz.  Removing debian/bzr.manpages from the
source package should stop dh_installman from including it. :-)
