Description Michael Meissner 2001-06-20 22:22:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3 i686)

Description of problem:
Openssh only prints its messages in English, and expects yes/no upon
input.  If the LANG variable is set to say french, the messages should
be in french, and the user should answer oui/non instead of yes/no.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set environment variable LANG to "french".
2. slogin to a machine that is not in your known_hosts file.
3. slogin will issue a message (in English) saying type "yes" or "no"    
to add the host to the known hosts list.
4. User must type "yes" or "no" at this point, instead of oui/non.

Actual Results:  Messages and prompts are in english.

Expected Results:  Error messages should be in French, and user should be
prompted to type "oui" or "non" instead of "yes" or "no".

I'm sorry, but this must be done upstream.
