[openFATE 312268] LibreOffice: split l10n-extras into required and optional packages
Feature changed by: Gerald Pfeifer (GeraldPfeifer)
Feature #312268, revision 4
Title: LibreOffice: split l10n-extras into required and optional

Requested by: Petr Mladek (pmladek)

Partner organization:

The size of libreoffice-l10n-extras package is 15MB. Only about 5MB is
important to run LO. The rest could be moved to an optional package.

Business case (Partner benefit): Live CDs helps to promote SUSE products. This change
would help to put more interesting stuff on it.

#1: Petr Mladek (pmladek) (2011-04-20 17:34:31)
Important things:
* /usr/share/libreoffice/LICENSE.odt - main file describing the license
(yes, the installation is far from FHS)
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/presets - is the basic structure for
the default user configuration
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/fonts/truetype/opens___.ttf -
font with math symbols
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/config/wizard - common stuff
for wizards (letter, fax, ...)
Optional stuff and change proposal:
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/gallery - split into separate
optional package [5.2MB]
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/template/layout - move to the
optional libreoffice-templates-layout [7.5MB]
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/template/wizard/letter - move
to optional l10n-lang packages [6MB]
* /usr/share/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/autocorr - split into extra
optional package or per language [2MB]
We would end with 4.7MB of required stuf.f
Note that part of the wizard stuff would stay on the Live CD inside the
l10n-lang packages [250kB per language].

+ That sounds like a generally beneficial change. As for priority, it's
+ somewhat of a "weaker Important" compared to some others.
