The bug mentions that for Evolution, the package shrinks by ~10%.

Would be interesting to see if we get the same results; using lzma for
our rpms might change this.

The -lang rpm package shrunk from 20mb to 19mb:

Original package;
3479035 2008-11-01 14:49 evolution-2.24.1-9.1.x86_64.rpm
20367188 2008-11-01 14:50 evolution-lang-2.24.1-9.1.x86_64.rpm

Modified package;
3479073 2008-11-01 14:05 evolution-2.24.1-8.1.x86_64.rpm
19513598 2008-11-01 14:06 evolution-lang-2.24.1-8.1.x86_64.rpm

The installed size shrunk from with 4.5mb (From 66646 to 62363)

I'll try with a few more packages to see what the effect is.

Cheers,
Magnus
