Re: Adding ttf-sil-abyssinica-udeb to packages used in the GTK installer?

Thanks for the answers. Given that there are no obvious problems in the 
package, I have no problem with adding it when localechooser is uploaded 
with Amharic activated.

Hmm. That's the package size. Installed size is 608kB.

That means we now have (sizes as reported by packages.d.o):
Package				Package Size	Installed Size
ttf-freefont-udeb (base)	  317.4 kB	 576 kB   

ttf-cjk-compact-udeb		1,070.4 kB	1,816 kB
ttf-tmuni-udeb			  477.7 kB	1,356 kB

ttf-sil-abyssinica-udeb		  215.6 kB  	  608 kB

So, sil-abyssinica is certainly one of the larger fonts and adds 
significantly to the G-I memory footprint.

cjk-compact is by far the largest, but also effectively covers 4 major 

I forget why we still have dejavu. Davide: what are the chances of getting 
rid of that?

The last 4 or 5 are IMO no problem given their size, but for ttf-tmuni and 
sil-abyssinica and possibly malayalam-fonts a size reduction would be 
Maybe we should also consider removing them if another language is selected 
(which of course does not help the initrd size)?
