Bug Description

Binary package hint: erlang

The amd64 alternate CD is currently 22MB oversize leading up to alpha 1, and erlang appears to be a principal culprit. From a report of size increases of packages on the CD between karmic final and today's lucid daily:

Changed: erlang-base 3514K
Changed: erlang-xmerl 721K
Changed: erlang-inets 446K
Changed: erlang-mnesia 431K
Changed: erlang-ssl 365K
Changed: erlang-public-key 233K
Changed: erlang-syntax-tools 181K
Changed: erlang-runtime-tools 119K

This needs to be corrected if we are to have usable CD images for alpha 1 this week.

It's possible this size change traces back to the following Debian changelog entry:

erlang (1:13.b.1-dfsg-6) unstable; urgency=low

  * Restored debug info in beam files for default build. It's better to use
    more space than to ship broken modules (debugger, dialyzer). The patch
    is simply commented out in debian/patches/series, so if someone has to
    strip debug info, he can simply uncomment it.

This bug was fixed in the package erlang - 1:13.b.2.1-dfsg-1ubuntu2

erlang (1:13.b.2.1-dfsg-1ubuntu2) lucid; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/series: Enable native.patch again, to get stripped beam
    files and reduce the package size again. (LP: #493278)
