Re: Seperate kdelibs-devel documentation

Is it possible for /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kdelibs-apidocs to be
seperated from kdelibs-devel?

On my test system (which is currently low on hard drive space), the
documentation that comes with kdelibs-devel takes up over 300MB, which
is almost 10% of the total size of my install (and almost 8% of the
number of files on my system). This is very costly in terms of disk
space for something I have not used even once.

Can this be split into a kdelibs-docs package? Or is there a good
reason this is so huge?

Sorry if this has been asked before, I did make a good attempt to
search the archives and bugzilla but was unable to find anything.


My personal opinion is that we should exclude it entirely because it is too big, rarely needed, and if people really want it they can easily get it from the Internet. However other people disagree and they think it is important for us to ship it.

I would support the idea of a kdelibs-docs package, but it would be up to the KDE package maintainer to do it.
