 No, that just renames `grass7.1` to `grass78.1`.

 Which is not the case on Debian:
 $ apt-file search man1/g.manual.1
 grass-doc: /usr/share/man/man1/g.manual.1grass.gz

 So `g.manual.py` needs to be patched to test the `.1grass` section suffix
 instead of just `.1`, this is more in line with what `man(1)` does, as it
 has no issue to find manpages with `.1foo` suffixes:
 $ man -w g.manual
