Description of problem:
When installing fedora, User is aked for the appropriate keyboard for
the system. Several stages later, the user is asked for additional
language support. Irrespective of which keyboard the user has
selected, the default language for the system will always be English(USA).
There is a close relationship between the keyboard the user selects,
and the default language the user will want the install.
Installation will be a little easier and less error-prone if the
default language is pre-selected depending on the keyboard the user
has previously selected.
Eg If I select
Keyboard: Default language, Additional Languages
Danish Danish, English(Denmark)
Italian Italian(Italy), Italian(Switzerland)
United Kingdom English(Great Britain), English(Ireland)
U.S. English English(USA)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC3 Test 1 (Or any other version AFAIK)
2.Select a keyboard other than U.S.English
3.Forward through installation to "Additional language support" section.
Actual Results: English(USA) Will be the selected default language
for the system and English(USA) will be the only additional language
Expected Results: The pre-selected default language whould reflect
the language of the keyboard previously selected.
The default language support choices are keyed off of your language
selection for the installation. Doing otherwise is... non-obvious.
