1) I already commit generated man pages for each release - on the man branch
(there's also html branch with the html-formated man pages).

2) I'm aware of the git error you saw, and it is on my todo list

3) I just checked the git tarballs, and they don't include man pages either.
Should I include the manpages in the source tarball, or should I just
create another tarball with the manpages? (The git error will get fixed
regardless - that's the only invocation of git during the manpage build
process, and it's there only to get a nice looking version number to
include in the manpages.)
