For now we are modifying locale-archive, but we are aware the this
problems with container overlays, and are looking for a solution
this works on a per-file basis with each new subpackage langauge
a new loadable optimized binary locale file.
The stepping stone will likely be:
_install_langs (to limit languages)
-> subpackages that modify locale-archive
-> subpackages that install their own files
Please remember the core runtimes are key part of the OS, and we make
these transitions slowly and gather metrics about how effective each
step was and how many bugs we got, and if the intermediate changes
I understand that, and thanks for doing this work, its pretty
important imho. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of what
the best end goal was.
Btw, do you have any measures of the performance improvements of using
the locale archive is in general? It seems a like many other distros
chose not to use it.
