Bug#850619: Manpage manage.1 installed into wrong directory

Source: plainbox
Version: 0.25-1
Severity: normal

Currently, plainbox ships with the following manpages:

$ dpkg -c plainbox_0.25-1_all.deb| grep usr/share/man | grep '\.gz$

manage.1.gz is in the wrong directory and cannot be read using man(1).

This is because dh_installman interprets the .py.1 suffix as a language.

Renaming manage.py.1 to manage.1 in override_dh_auto_build and
debian/plainbox.manpages fixes the issue.
