Hi,

maybe I missed some announcement or document but I noticed that some
packages (seems mainly Gnome ones) splitted the locale files out into an
extra %{name}-lang package.

What's the purpose of doing that? Is there any package conventions
document about it?
Is it to prepare an en-US only media and keeping the package sizes as
small as possible?

Wolfgang
