Debian and its clones Well, this is interesting. We already have a Mono item ruffling some feathers on OSNews today, but here we have the apparent news that Tomboy has become a default part of GNOME on Squeeze, the next release of Debian. Wait, what now? Update: I've updated the article with Fedora's position in all this. Read on! Update II: Josselin Mouette replies.

On Debian Squeeze Tomboy's package alone is over 13Mb not counting dependencies.


Interesting. Looks like it includes all debugging symbols (*.mdb), translations for about 50 different languages, and a help guide for 15 languages. The help guides includes the same 17 .png's for each of the 15 different languages.

I assume it could probably be packaged a bit more efficiently. ;)
