Description Gennadi Sushko 2006-06-18 04:25:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Package glibc-common contains all supported locales. It can be split into 
separate locales (e.g. by language: ru en aa etc.). This will save nearly 150 
Mbs(+ 50Mbs because of locale-archive) to any Fedora installation.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2006-06-18 05:17:24 EDT
All locale related files are properly %lang() marked, so if you want to
only install a few locales, it is far better to just set %_install_langs
appropriately, say
%_install_langs ru en
in rpm configuration.  Splitting glibc-common is very bad idea, that would grow
things a lot, as many locale files are identical between dozens of locales and
are normally hardlinked together.
