Save disk space on your Debian system with localepurge

On any of your Debian boxes you can minimize the disk space used with a nifty little package called localepurge.
This comes especially handy on root-servers or virtual servers where disk space is usually quite limited.

After installing anything with apt-get install foo, localepurge will remove all translation files and translated manpages in languages you cannot read (can be configured in /etc/locale.nopurge, of course).

This can save you several megabytes of disk space, depending on the packages you have installed.
