Description Qingyu Wang 2005-12-30 09:32:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; zh-CN; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Red Hat/1.0.6-1.4.2 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Glibc does not support following major Indic locales:
1. Oriya language locale 
2. Sinhala language locale 
3. Assamese language locale 

Although assamese scripts borrowes heavily from the Bengali script(which is supported by glibc now and whose locale is bn_IN) and is nearly same barring for 2 or 3 alphabets which are exclusively used in Assamese and not in Bengali. The following two alphabets are used exclusively for the Assamese script: U09F0 and U09F1. On the other hand the alphabet: U09B0 is used in Bengali but not in Assamese. So need to add a new locale for Assamese. http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0980.pdf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4 with supporting all languages
2. In directory /usr/lib/locale/ you can't find the locale files for these three languages

Actual Results:  In directory /usr/lib/locale you can't find the locale files for these three languages

Expected Results:  In directory /usr/lib/locale you will find the locale files for these three languages

Please reopen when the support for those languages is written as a request
to include them.
Comment 3 Leon Ho 2006-03-02 21:01:17 EST
Bug #142708 and Bug #142709 are the requests for RHEL5.

Initial localedef for si_LK

FYI, actually the glibc cvs trunk should have a latest version of this localedef:
Comment 6 Leon Ho 2006-03-13 21:18:27 EST
Look like rawhide glibc contains Sinhala locale def. Closing this until we see
any bugs on it. Thanks.
