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
