Package: emacs20-dl
Version: 20.7-14.3
Severity: normal

This is a semi-automated bug report based on scanning the contents of
binary .deb files in the Debian archive.

The emacs20-dl packages seem to contain a very large amount of
architecture-independent data in architecture-dependent packages,
specifically data installed under /usr/share. This is wasteful of
mirror space and bandwidth, as we then end up with multiple copies of
this data, one for each architecture. Policy is quite clear on this
point:

http://www.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/ch-best-pkging-practices#s-b=
pp-archindepdata

The usage (in KB) of /usr/share by these packages is currently:

29232 pool/main/e/emacs20-dl/emacs20-dl_20.7-14.3_alpha.deb
29232 pool/main/e/emacs20-dl/emacs20-dl_20.7-14.3_arm.deb

Please split this package appropriately.

emacs20-dl is only in woody and not in testing/unstable anymore.
Closing the bug.
