Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814221
Split documentation into separate RPM subpackage
Last modified: 2014-06-17 08:17:16 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
The documentation is starting to get fairly large, with translations. It would be better to separate it into its own subpackage that can be left off of space-constrained install media like LiveCDs.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Upstream ticket was closed. Stephen reported:
I was recently made aware of the --excludedocs argument to RPM. This makes it possible to install an RPM without any contents marked as %doc in the spec file. There's no need to split out the documentation into a subpackage.
I've verified that the %lang routines that we use in SSSD produce proper entries labeled as %doc in the final output.
Given this information, I am closing the Bugzilla too.
