I plan to remove the manpage in a future upload. The remote functionality
is backed into the podman binary directly, please refer to podman(1) how to
use the 'podman --remote' functionality.

Background: I brought this up to the podman cabal meeting (cf. meeting
notes at https://hackmd.io/gQCfskDuRLm7iOsWgH2yrg?both) -- Fedora does ship
indeed a smaller podman-remote binary which the manpage is pointing to. Dan
suggested to use  use "podman --remote" instead. I couldn't figure out how
to build the smaller executable. Fedora is using the upstream Makefiles,
which we don't use in the Debian packaging. Instead, we are using the
golang debhelper which takes care of all the unbundling.
