Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 108741
Make openoffice.org-i18n optional
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:32 EST
Request for Enhancement:
Make the openoffice.org-i18n optional.
The i18n package for openoffice is currently a mandatory component of the
openoffice package. It's also ~120MB big, most of which is not used on any
given system. Yes, disk space is cheap, but that's an especially large waste of
space, especially on older and/or laptop systems.
It would be nice if the i18n's were split by locale (as the kde packages are) so
that a user only has to carry around one set of files.
This would be a lot of work, but a good first step might be to include the en_US
locale stuff in the main openoffice.org rpm and remove the dependancy on the
i18n package. This would help the most people for the least work.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 108720 ***
Please reopen as this bug is 1) not a dupe of bug 108720 and 2) not fixed.
AFAIK, this is fixed as of rawhide's ooo-1.1.2-3
Separate language RPMs will come after FC3.
