Description Robert Scheck 2006-05-13 05:05:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When I'm doing the following on my system,

$ rpm -qf /usr/share/locale/* | grep -c "is not owned"
$ rpm -qf /usr/share/locale/* | grep -v -c "is not owned"

then I'll come to the result, that about 90 directories in /usr/share/locale/* 
are not owned, but only 49 are owned by glibc-common and man. IMHO that's wrong 
and also not clean packaged.

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

How reproducible:
See above.

Actual results:
Lots of unowned directories and subdirectories in /usr/share/locale

Expected results:
All directories and subdirectories owned by a package.

Additional info:
The mess comes normally up, when there is no man page or glibc translation 
available for the corresponding language. Let me take the following:

What the hell is owned here by a package except /usr/share/locale and the file 
itself? Nothing...

I filed this bug against distribution, because I don't know which package could 
be suitable.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2006-06-23 08:51:28 EDT
Hint: Try a i18n-filesystem package that contains the /usr/share/locale directory skeleton with %lang as 
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2006-06-26 08:18:10 EDT
I opened up bug #196669, which proposes a filesystem-i18n package for Fedora 
Core. Alternatively, the filesystem-i18n package could be merged into the 
existing filesystem package, if there are no contras for doing this.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-06-29 14:42:00 EDT
IMO, these bits ought to be in the filesystem package.
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2006-06-29 14:53:46 EDT
Fix it where ever you want, but fix it please :)

BTW, more locales are listed at: http://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po/ 
and in /usr/share/gettext/intl/config.charset there are also locales listed but 
guess Fedora/Red Hat will have to maintain the locales list manually anyway.
Comment 5 Robert Scheck 2006-10-14 05:44:26 EDT
This bug report got fixed by resolving bug #196669. Finally, a bit is missing 
which is tracked down in bug #210749. Closing here...
