Hi all!

As I posted on the packaging ML[1] the new RPM 4.7.1 in Factory allows
us to create a noarch subpackages. We might save significant space on
BiArch DVDs and mirrors if we mark all the *-doc, *-devel-doc,
*-branding-* and similar subpackages that are arch because of the main
package. I don't have even a rough estimate, but I can hack a script
that will check the filelists of the subpackages if they could be marked
as noarch. What do you think?

It will be a nice addition to 11.3, I'm sure.

So, you're rejecting this for 11.2? Could you give some more details about
your reasons, please? Do you fear that the Build Service cannot handle this?

Andreas
