I am not asking for support just curious. I prefer to save the internet and download only the run files and not things like headers if I am not compiling software.
I am aware, if this bothers me too much, to move to a distro that split development to packages called
package-dev or package-development. Ditto locale files
So my question is, why are the downstream maintainers, mainly Arch people not spllitting their packages into run, dev and locale pacakges?
I admit I did not do sufficient research on Arch or Arch based distros before installing it.
thanks for reading
