Subject: Please add manpages-fr-extra to 'french' task

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.76
Severity: normal

On a fresh lenny installed in french, many basic manpages (for example
for bash, coreutils) are not provided in french.
Indeed, they are provided in manpages-fr-extra which is not installed by
default, and manpages-fr intends only to translate the package

Thanks for adding manpages-fr-extra to the french task.
