  gnome-help/shell-introduction.page link to removed files

Status in gnome-user-docs package in Ubuntu:
Status in language-pack-gnome-es-base package in Ubuntu:
Status in gnome-user-docs source package in Trusty:
  In Progress
Status in language-pack-gnome-es-base source package in Trusty:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:

  The latest language pack update for trusty at 2016-07-20 did (for
  unknown reason) not include the localized gnome-help pages, so gnome-
  help is displayed in English whatever the session language is.

  The proposed upload sets the NO_PKG_MANGLE variable, so the package is
  built without language stripping. This works around the failure with
  the language packs.

  [Test Case]

  Open gnome-help with a non-English language (using Spanish as

  LANGUAGE=es yelp help:gnome-help

  Current package: Showed in English

  Proposed package: Showed in Spanish

  [Regression Potential]

  Negligible. This is in practice a no-change rebuild.

  [Original description]

  is a link to /usr/share/help-langpack/es/gnome-help/shell-introduction.page

  A lot of pages became broken links since some update of language-pack-
  gnome-*-base lost target files.

  Most of missing files are listed at:
