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):
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').
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
the ISO list of official ISO language codes

I was pointed out a few mistakes in the locales

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.
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 :-(
Ok, changing components.
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
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.
No answer in 7 months. Closing. In any case something which needs to
be brought up upstream.
