Why is the manpage in a -bin package? Because the manpange is compressed
via gzip, and therefore "binary"? I would expect the manpage to be
installed when either smbd or smbclient are installed, or any other tools
making use of the manpage. Since most samba-packages depend on
samba-common, I'd love to see the manpage included there. The changelog
mentions #524661, but not that the manpages were moved as well.
To be honest, it was quite a ride to finally find this bugreport only to
see that there really *is* a manpage, but in a (seemlingly unrelated)
Please reconsider and make smb.conf.5 a part of samba-common again.
