I arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share

All reports of arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package has a significant amount of architecture-independent data (over 4MB, or over 2MB and more than 50% of the package) in /usr/share but is an architecture-dependent package. This is wasteful of mirror space and bandwidth since it means distributing multiple copies of this data, one for each architecture.

If the data in /usr/share is not architecture-independent, this is a Policy violation that should be fixed by moving the data elsewhere (usually /usr/lib).

Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 6.7.5 (Architecture-independent data) for details.
