Description Matthew Miller 2012-10-09 21:50:15 EDT
Description of problem:

We're trying to get the Fedora cloud image as small as possible. Moving all docs out of the minimal image is a harder task, but there are some relatively 

libxml2 takes up 5.2M, of which 3.8M is docs, and which look mostly to be development documentation.

Could these either be moved to a -docs subpackage, or to the -devel subpackage?

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

I'm looking at libxml2-2.7.8 in F17 right now, but I'm most concerned with moving forward.
Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2012-10-11 02:41:45 EDT
Actually the docs were duplicated in the the main package
and in the devel one, I just cleaned them up (a bit convoluted
it was installed as part of "make install" not %doc !)

thinkpad:~/fcpkgs/libxml2/master -> rpm -qilp /home/veillard/rpms/RPMS/x86_64/libxml2-2.9.0-2.fc17.x86_64.rpm
Name        : libxml2
Version     : 2.9.0
Size        : 1644597
thinkpad:~/fcpkgs/libxml2/master -> 

  Back to the strict minimum, I alsoc removed the old ChangeLog
which didn't made sense anymore since we switched to git.

  I build libxml2-2.9.0-2.fc19 for rawhide, i will probably do the same for
f18 soon
