Re: Re: when to split a package into architecture: all and architecture: any halves
Personally I base my splitting on lintian's warning.
The package has a significant amount of architecture-independent data
(over 4MB, or over 2MB and more than 50% of the package) in /usr/share
but is an architecture-dependent package. This is wasteful of mirror
space and bandwidth since it means distributing multiple copies of
this data, one for each architecture.
