Bug Description

Big (750kb) changelog.gz file duplicates in libsnmp-base and libsnmp9 packages (look at folders /usr/share/doc/libsnmp-base/ and /usr/share/doc/libsnmp9 )

libsnmp9 depends on libsnmp-base, so instead of file

changelog.gz is compressed file, so, it takes ~750kb in LiveCD and in Ubuntu mirrors for each architecture - libsnmp9 binary package doubles in size because of this unneeded file :(

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

Big changelog.gz file duplicates in libsnmp-base and libsnmp packages bug was fixed in Ubuntu 7.10, I've just read changelog.Debian.gz file from Gutsy's packages:

net-snmp (5.3.1-6ubuntu2) gutsy; urgency=low
  * Do not install the upstream changelog in libsnmp10 and libsnmp-base.
  * Symlink files common in libsnmp10 and libsnmp-base.

But this bug still exist in latest Debian package libsnmp-base_5.4.1~dfsg-12_all.deb :(
