But in that case I suppose that you need to make the source package
build language specific deb-files, such as


Still guessing, though.

Bug description:
  We want to add the gnome getting started user guide to the Ubuntu
  GNOME seed, however since this package includes localized
  video/animations, the current packaging ends up at 120MB which is
  really too big to include in the ISO.

  So will split this up into language packs and only seed the english
  version, and let language-selector handle installation of the
  localized versions.
