Re: Little endian /usr/share/locale/* files in epiphany-browser-data

Hi Loic, thanks for your answer!

 The files will work on both little endian and big endian systems, but
 there's a performance hit when the endianess differ (as the file can't
 be used directly when it's mmap-ed).

 It's a bug, but it's not clear to me how we could fix this while not
 losing too much space.


 I'd rather not implement anything specific in epiphany-browser, it
 would be best to discuss this more widely and come to a generic
 solution for all arch: all packages.

May I conclude that it is common practice to ship little-endian locale files in arch-indep data packages that are also referenced by big-endian arch packages? While not being perfect, it is convenient and (most importantly) it actually works -- somehow.
