Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 195822

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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC.
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
%_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.
