Just my 2 cents here, I'd seek another solution for this but
implemented as a plugin or an option of dnf, whereas introducing new
subpkg of large amount of packages sounds tedious to me.
Yes, that would be tedious. I'd only be for it if it could be made automatic
- which I think could be possible, similar to how debuginfo is produced. It
would be a lot trickier though as the files live side-by-side.
For example define a new kind of file as %cache in %files, and process
them like find-lang, then let users decide whether files marked as
%cache will be installed in default or not.
This is an interesting idea too though.
