Keep the desktop docs away from the language packs
Status in gnome-getting-started-docs package in Ubuntu:

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
As of Ubuntu 17.10 the Ubuntu desktop guide will be made up of three
I have just set the NO_PKG_MANGLE variable in ubuntu-docs:
It's desirable to avoid that the translated pages are stripped at
build time also for gnome-user-docs and gnome-getting-started-docs.
Why? To make it possible in practice to do docs SRUs. Language pack
updates in stable releases are made only for languages which have been
successfully tested, and since you never make all the translator teams
accomplish the required tests, the use of language packs would make
docs SRUs result in different docs contents for different languages.
Since gnome-user-docs and gnome-getting-started-docs are about to be
moved to main, I assume that NO_PKG_MANGLE should be set for them too.
The archive size of gnome-user-guide (including the translated pages)
is 11 MiB. gnome-getting-started-docs is bigger, but OTOH it's already
split into language specific binaries:
gnome-getting-started-docs (only English)
(The archive size of ubuntu-docs has been reduced to 0.2 MiB including
the translated pages.)
