Package: csmash
Version: 0.6.6-2
Severity: normal

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

The csmash 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. Initial estimates suggest that
several gigabytes of Debian archive space may currently be wasted
because of packages like this.

The way to fix this depends on the layout of your package:

  * Some packages need to have a -common or -doc package split out to
    contain this common data, and the existing packages that need this
    data should then be altered to depend on the new -common or -doc

  * This package may already be such a -common or -doc package, in
    which case it probably should already be marked as Architecture:
    all in your debian/control file rather than Architecture: any .

  * Maybe the files under /usr/share do not belong there - several
    packages seem to contain data in /usr/share that is definitely
    architecture-dependent. In this case, please move the files into
    the right place.

Policy is quite clear on this point:


The usage of these packages is currently:

Please split this package appropriately. If you believe your package
is already split reasonably, then sorry for bothering you. If you wish
to discuss this further, please feel free to reply to this bug. If you
agree that there's a problem here but need help to fix it: again, feel
free to ask...

Closes: 228430 233337
 csmash (0.6.6-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * New maintainer. (Closes: #228430)
   * Data files are now separated (csmash-data). (Closes: #233337)
   * Icon moved to /usr/share/pixmaps/.
   * Added URL to description.
   * Patch for loadparts.cpp is now applied by dpatch, thus some changes
     were made in debian/control and debian/rules.
   * Removed config.(sub|guess) files (we're now using autotools-dev)
   * debian/control:
     - explicitly select *gl* dependencies
     - added dependency on autotools-dev, thus some changes in rules file too
   * debian/rules:
     - extended binary-indep target for csmash-data
       thanks for Andreas Metzler for pointing it out to me.
     - some fixes to use `xargs -0r` instead of simple rm
       thanks to many people from debian-mentors@l.d.o for suggestions.
