Description of problem:
The vietnamese locale, vi_VN, as shipped with fc3, does not sort text
correctly. Pablo Saratxaga has created a modified vi_VN for mandrake,
after installing that on my fc3 things worked much better! It would be
nice if we could include it in the next fedora core- or even better if
Ulrich could get it in the next glibc release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file TOSORT.txt containting the lines
2. LC_ALL=vi_VN sort < TOSORT.txt
the sprm "locales-18.104.22.168-6mdk.src.rpm", is googleable, it
contains a copy of vi_VN which can be made to generate
a good Vietnamese locale

I assume you're a native speaker and can vouch for the correctness (or better
I am not a native speaker.
Documentation in English, if you want:
If you're not a native speaker, why should your information be trusted? Unless
you can soon produce conclusive evidence from an authorative sources I'll close
the bug as NOTABUG.
There is a bug on glibc bugzilla on vi_VN
And yes, i'm a native Vietnamese speaker, Vietnamese GNOME translation
coordinator and translator of other projects so you may trust me :)
BTW, could you close glibc bug 448 please?
I've added the new version to the upstream CVS. The proposed changes in the
sourceware bug system is quite different. Since that bug was older I
disregarded that version. But somebody better verify that this is correct.
I have some comment about this on sourceware bug system because as the time i
was checking mails, redhat bugzilla was down. Please have a look.
Bug has been resolved upstream.
