Description Kenn Humborg 2004-09-14 22:07:48 UTC
Description of problem:

The /usr/share/docs/samba-XXX/docs directory comes to
about 20MB for samba-3.0.6-2.fc2.  

It is very inconvenient for us on dialup to have to download
these docs again (via an updated samba RPM) when there is a
samba update.

If would be nice if these manuals were in a separate samba-docs
RPM that did not have a strict version dependency on the 
core binary RPMs (so that an older samba-docs can co-exist
with updated binaries).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Additional info:

I am willing to provide a patch for the spec file if it is
likely to be accepted.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Moving this to devel so it doesn't get lost. 

Comment 3 Simo Sorce 2007-03-23 21:51:27 UTC
Done in 3.0.24 in rawhide.
