Description of problem:
$ dnf info glibc-langpack-sl
Description: The glibc-langpack-sl package includes the basic
information required to support the sl language in your applications.
Is this 'slovak' or 'slovenian' or maybe something else? I'd need to use a web search to figure this out.
The same for all other languages...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We could put langtable into the buildrequires of glibc.spec and
then use langtable to generate that information:
[mfabian@Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x86_6 ~]$ python3
Python 3.7.1 (default, Nov 5 2018, 14:07:04)
[GCC 8.2.1 20181011 (Red Hat 8.2.1-4)] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import langtable
>>> langtable.language_name(languageId='sl', languageIdQuery='en')
Although I guess users of a certain language will know the iso code
of "their" language.
langtable is only 124k, so I think it'd be worth it.

I agree. An increase in the glibc.spec file is perfectly acceptable if it produces easier to understand binary rpm description information. It doesn't increase installed size (by any appreciable amount).
