If you distribute the translated manpages commercially,
it is your responsibility to figure out your obligations.
For many manpages, these obligations require you to
distribute nroff sources with any pre-formatted manpages
that you provide. Each file that contains nroff source
for a manpage also contains the author(s) name, email
address, and copyright notice.
