Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492435
Please split documentation into ppl-doc subpackage
Last modified: 2009-03-29 13:05:20 EDT
Package's documentation is over 1 MB (ppl-0.10, 4112 kbytes). Creating a -doc subpackage and moving the documentation files there would save considerable space on the live media.
Thanks in advance!
I am not sure I understand: we already have a ppl-docs package.
One possibility would be to include the ChangeLog in bzip2 format. But I don't know if this is compatible with Fedora's packaging rules.
I believe the pdf and ps files could be moved into -docs and probably ChangeLog as well.
Roberto: Bzipped ChangeLog won't help much, since it can't be compressed further. Note that the live media already uses squashfs compression.
Done in ppl-0.10-11.fc11. Please let me know if this allows you to do what you wanted to do.
