Please, let me know if there is any other information that you may need. Thanks.

To add support, there needs to be at least 90% translation coverage.  See
Comment 3 Joseph S. Maza 2006-11-16 18:02:04 EST
I did not know of the 90% coverage criterion since there was not mentioning of 
the criteria on the page that was cited.

I've already localized the files for autorun and about 50% for anaconda. I am 
currently soliciting other speakers of the language to participate. 

Here are a few more questions because I would appreciate some clarification 
before I embark on localizing anything any further or soliciting the assitance 
of others.

1) What constitutes 90%? How is that supposed to be proven? Does that mean both 
UI text AND Documentation? Or, just UI?

2) How can I test the locale if it isn't even enabled on the system?

This might see irrelevant, but I noticed that Tagalog, another Filipino 
language, is "available" in Fedora Core 6, yet I don't see any files in CVS for 
the locale (tl.po nor tl-PH.po). And, when I started to use the locale in FC6, 
NOTHING was localized. 
So, question #3...

3) Was Tagalog enabled before this criterion was in effect?

I have attached the resourced file for anaconda to fulfill the 90% localization
Comment 6 Joseph S. Maza 2006-11-24 23:05:36 EST
I was told later that the file needed to be attached and contain over 90% of 
localization. Next time would that be better comminicated for those who wish to 
add a locale not included in the latest release.

Great, thanks -- added to lang-table and so will show up in the next build
