[Bug-tar] [PATCH] removal of cover texts

I noticed that the tar manual includes cover texts which could
actually be removed.  The maintainers guide says

  If your manual is not published by the FSF, and under 400 pages, you
  can omit both cover texts.

The tar manual meets both criteria by my count (242 pages).  The tar
manual is currently not in Debian main, and removing the cover texts
would make that possible.
