I provide one download that is easy to use for any user of both Linux an
Windows. Thus is obviously contains files unnecessary for each of the
two operating systems.
If it was just a few extra MB, I could agree. But 94M /
800M IMHO are
past the point here you should split per OS.
I have heard of dependencies and the .deb
contains a lot of them, and they are downloaded when it is installed. I
can produce a higher quality .deb file.
It will still be 90MByte because
I need a full Unicode font. To be precise I need twelve variants of it
and thats the 90MByte.
You mean the mega font? That's actually 207M
That should probably go to a different package (and depend on it). I
don't see why it couldn't fallback to another available font if it's not
Many wikis are written in just a tiny subset of unicode.
It seems you're creating it from wqyzenhei + unifont + freeserif fonts.
Why do you need to merge them?
I essentially did the tmp trick in order to get
around the work of researching where to install each file and to
properly fix the path names in the code and to test that.
In case of doubt, you should have placed the folder in /usr/lib
A number of would be better placed at /usr/share, though.
But I'm not sure what are many files.
For instance, what's the purpose of geturl and pa programs?
And why do you have copies at bin/ and dist/build? Furthermore, why are
Build artifacts are also common there.
So for now you
can run the software, you can test every feature you want, and if you or
somebody else decided s/he wants to use it, I will make a .deb file that
fits yours needs. This will probably take two weeks, with most of the
time being spent on chose proper directories.
I feel a bit wary of running that :S
