Apparently, it was decided that Fedora Atomic Host images should include only the locales 'officially supported' by RHEL 7 - see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1430182 , jlebon says it was decided to apply the same choice to Fedora as to RHEL.
This is entirely out of step with all other Fedora flavors, though, I believe. These include far, far more locales. The 'RHEL supported' list doesn't include such obvious and widely-used locales as en_CA and en_AU. I'm not sure it makes sense to just decide the RHEL 'supported locales' list is an appropriate basis for the list of locales to include in Fedora images.
(not sure which component is best for this, picking rpm-ostree to get the appropriate people's attention).
Hmmmm. We did something similar with the cloud image, but in that case, it was fairly easy to add back. Also, that was based on size not RHEL parity.

Probably https://pagure.io/atomic-wg/issues since it's a policy decision and since it's general rather than a specific component.
Yeah, I'd say we should track this as a WG issue indeed.
