In ubuntu-docs and gnome-user-docs they are pulled into language-pack-
gnome-XX-base (and replaced with symlinks in the .deb file). Considering
that gnome-getting-started-docs uses the same markup tool (Mallard) as
the other two, and given what Laney said, it shouldn't be hard to make
it work the same way.

Please note that there is a drawback with the proposed solution: If
someone installs Ubuntu GNOME in some other language but English, the
installer won't install the localized gnome-getting-started-docs package
as long as it's not in main. pkg_depends basically presupposes that the
packages are in main.

I don't know if it would be possible (for policy reasons) to move
g-g-s-d from universe to main for this reason.

  split into language packs

Status in Ubuntu GNOME:
Status in gnome-getting-started-docs package in Ubuntu:
Status in language-selector package in Ubuntu:

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.
