scim-python-pinyin db file too big!
Last modified: 2009-10-09 22:54:12 EDT
Description of problem:
The py.db file in scim-python-pinyin is 120MB it seems very big: eg scim-pinyin
Steps to Reproduce:
1. du -sh /usr/share/scim-python/engine/PinYin
2. du -sh /usr/share/scim/pinyin
1. similar to scim-pinyin
This means we can't currently use scim-python-pinyin as default IM on Live images.
Python pinyin has 837442 phrases in database. scim-pinyin only has 160000 phrases. It is the main reason of this problem. And python pinyin use sqlite as data engine. sqlite uses many space for creating index. It is very useful for performance.
So this problem can not be fixed easily. :(
BTW, I created a squashfs contain the py.db. Its size is 39M.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
scim-python-pinyin is obsoleted now. We move to ibus-pinyin. So make it wontfix.
