Package: ekiga
Version: 2.0.12-1
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

currently the ekiga package ships a lot of GNOME help images which are
in translation directories, but are not actually translated, just
copies of the English variant. This makes the package much bigger than

Attached patch uses fdupes to find those files during build and
replaces them with symlinks.

It has been tested in Ubuntu for several months without any problems.

Thanks for considering,
