Description vvs 2008-04-23 05:17:17 EDT
Description of problem:

Support for all languages is installed despite no languages were selected during

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do not select support for any languages during installation
2. After installation run find /usr/share/locale -type f
Actual results:

The language support files are still present for other than english languages.

Expected results:

They shouldn't be installed.

Additional info:

Also, it would be nice if languages selected during installation got included in
to rpm %_install_langs macro.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-23 11:58:50 EDT
We don't set %_install_langs because doing so leaves a user with no way to add
translations later. 
Comment 2 vvs 2008-04-24 01:32:45 EDT
Well, %_install_langs was just a suggestion, but the bug really was about
language support selection not working. How about that?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-24 09:37:22 EDT
Language support groups are about packages for supporting a language such as
input methods, fonts, and dictionaries.  They're not about translations.
