In looking at some documentation issues, I began to look at the package I installed on my machine. I noticed that GnuCash ships with all four documentation sets: English, German, Italian and Japanese. These documentation sets take up a lot of space and probably add significant heft to the GnuCash download size. Is there some way to offload the documentation so that a user installs only the language of their choosing? Assuming that the documentation is or will be translated into other languages, how should the documentation for languages other than these four handled? Adding 10-20MB of content per language to the tarball is not a viable option, long term…
