glibc-i18n 2.29 became very big


path: /usr/lib/locale
when glibc-i18n 2.28, size: 218MB
when glibc-i18n 2.29, size: 937MB

in 2.28, a lot of *same* files has same inode,
but in 2.29, each file has there own inode

*same* means they has same md5sum.

is this a problem? except the bigger size of directory.

That means hardlinks, which from my understanding are avoided by Slackware at all costs.

Logic says "if not hardlinks, then symlinks" but who cares about increasing the installed size of operating system with "only" around 700MB, just waving the hand?

Now the SSDs are even cheaper, right?

Oh, well... I wonder if we already hit 15GB on installed size.
