The size difference for most of the app packages are going to be
negligible.  But now, to push a new pirut with new strings, I also have
to coordinate the pushing of n langpack packages.  Which are each
significantly larger than the amount you save on the app packages.


As I'm one of the "pros", i'd like to add that, on an entire system,
translations packages could (sometimes) represent 1/3 of total space
used !
On light systems, when I delete all unneeded translation file, I
sometimes free more dans 1GB disk space.

But this is data for the whole system. I don't know how much fedora
tools' translation files represent. Maybe it's almost nothing. I don't


Well, POT files come to about 3MB. My translation are about 4.2MB, so the translation adds about 30%. Total translated average for Fedora is 50%. Currently there are 83 languages. Roughly speaking, half of them are 100%, half are 0%.
41*4.2 MB=172MB
subtotal= around 300MB

never downloaded all of them, will try later on, just for fun ;)
