i have 2 packages the first one has a Fetched 89.2 kb size and it has 571 installed size ( lxterminal ) , and the other one has a Fetched 1738 kb size and it has 502 installed size ( mlterm ) . how is it possible that a lighter Fetched size gives a heavier installed size ? and which one consider to be lighter
mlterm depends on mlterm-common:
