From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90) Description of problem: The Limburgish language (ISO code: lim, li) is missing from the Language Configuration Tool list (as seen on http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/config- tools/redhat-config-language.html). This is simply a shame, because this way, people won't use this language; won't even know it is available. At this moment, about 33% of Gnome 2.4 has been translated. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Open the Language selector, try selecting Limburgish :-) Actual Results: impossible, since Limburgish wasn't on the list Expected Results: it should be an option Additional info:

Is Limburgish a valid glibc locale? I don't see it in the list of available locales ('locale -a').
Comment 2 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2004-01-13 13:16:47 UTC
well it should be added to glibc then. I though it had been. Let me attach the locale definition files. li or lim are official recognized ISO codes
Comment 3 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2004-01-13 13:17:34 UTC
http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/englangn.html the ISO list of official ISO language codes

Created attachment 96938 [details] Limburgish, the Netherlands
Comment 5 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2004-01-13 13:19:52 UTC
Created attachment 96939 [details] Limburgish, Belgium (locale li_BE)
Comment 6 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2004-01-13 13:25:03 UTC
I was pointed out a few mistakes in the locales please change: -- % FIXME country_name in Limburgish ? lang_name "Limburgish" -- to (in li_NL) -- country_name "Nederlandj" lang_name "Limburgs" -- and to (in li_BE) -- country_name "Belsj" lang_name "Limburgs" --
Comment 9 Brent Fox 2004-01-13 17:40:09 UTC
Should we change the component of this bug to glibc? Once it is added to the list of locales, I can make the necessary changes to system-config-language.
Comment 10 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2004-01-13 21:14:11 UTC
if that is the way to get them into glibc, then yes. I tried sending them to the glibc list and add a bugreport to their bugsystem - but I have never heard a word back :-(
Comment 11 Brent Fox 2004-01-14 15:15:46 UTC
Ok, changing components.
Comment 12 Jakub Jelinek 2004-01-14 15:40:50 UTC
Looking at http://sources.redhat.com/ml/libc-alpha/2003-06/msg00132.html and the following thread I don't see a response from you to Petter's questions. LC_IDENTIFICATION/language should be english name of the language (Limburgish I guess) and LC_IDENTIFICATION/terrirory should be Netherlands or Belgium. LC_ADDRESS/country_isbn is I think a number, not string and the other strings should be written in unicode. Furthermore they are incorrect, look what other locales use there. I think lang_term should be "<U006C><U0069><U006D>" and lang_lib probably similar (lang_ab/lang_term are in locale language while lang_lib is in english). Once you fix this, please post it as a patch to email@example.com.

I have never gotten these letters - maybe the mail server was down at that time. I will look into it.
Comment 14 Ulrich Drepper 2004-08-26 05:10:06 UTC
No answer in 7 months. Closing. In any case something which needs to be brought up upstream.
