Re: Packaging very large i18n material

I think it is the best short-term solution. The only long term solution would 
be to adapt the Debian packaging system for internationalization. Packager 
would create one metapackage for all the KOffice translation files packages 
and something like apt-get install --translation koffice would fetch the 
right translation package corresponding to my locale.

Somebody told me that something like that would be an heretical assault to 
Debian Policy, but I did not really understood his argument. 

I've just installed Mandrake 9.1 on a laptop and I must say that it is very 
nice to have everything automatically in French when it is a pain in the neck 
to get a 'French' Debian (even if it is possible).
