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-

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:

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

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

the ISO list of official ISO language codes

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"

li_BE locale

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 libc-alpha@sources.redhat.com.

Comment 13 Kenneth Rohde Christiansen 2004-01-14 17:15:43 UTC
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.
