Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-20 11:02:39 UTC
Unlikely to be fixed for RHEL3. glibc-common doesn't seem to have this
locale in, so there is more work than simply adding that line - fonts,
locale messages, etc need to be considered.  Defer until upstream has
rw_RW support.

If the locale gets added upstream it should be pulled in to future
releases of fedora and RHEL.

Comment 2 Steve Murphy 2004-10-21 20:05:46 UTC
as per your request (pnasrat@redhat.com),
here are a list of bug reports and their entities I've hit so far:

This is the glibc update request. Attached is the localedef input file
for Kinyarwanda/Rwanda.

bugzilla@freedesktop.org  bug #1640  -- request to add rw_RW to the
locale information in that X release

bugs.xfree86.org  bug #1494  -- request to add rw_RW to the locale
info in that release.

bugzilla.gnome.org  bug #155778 asking for specific updates to gdm's
locale info to accomodate Kinyarwanda.

And, hopefully, within a week, a set up upgrades to KDE and GNOME to
supply Kinyarwanda names for languages, and countries, currency, etc.


Comment 4 Steve Murphy 2005-03-01 19:34:41 UTC
for 155778, gdm reports "Fixed in CVS head."
for xfee86, status is: 'committed -- thanks'
for glibc, the locale's gone thru a few rounds of updates, and has
been quiescent; I've written today to see if the issue can be closed.
I've entered an issue with x.org, 


And a few miscellaneous with openoffice.org.

Please, the translation of mozilla is near 50%, and 1.x version of
openOffice is at 95%. Is there anything else to be done to move this
issue to closure?

Many thanks!
