Thanks - I guess git-manpages generally doesn't include bits from contrib then.

The homebrew recipe states:

    # We could build the manpages ourselves, but the build process depends
    # on many other packages, and is somewhat crazy, this way is easier.

So while I'm sure it's possible it sounds like the current process is preferred.

This would be most excellent; I'm only starting to use subtrees but
after some painful experiences with submodules I really like the
subtree model so far.
