LC_TELEPHONE tel_dom_fmt localization
Last modified: 2009-11-22 12:51:15 EST
Description of problem:
in en_GB locales LC_TELEPHONE does not match local custom
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.locale -ck LC_TELEPHONE
tel_int_fmt="+%c %a %l"
since UK phone numbers are usually written
01223 337992 or +44 1223 337992
(domestic area codes have prefix 0, internationally they don't)
I believe that the same custom applies in France, Germany
and possibly other European countries, thus locales fr_FR* and de_DE*
need fixing too.
section 4.12 defines:
%a area code without nationwide prefix (prefix is often <0>).
%A area code including nationwide prefix (prefix is often <0>).
I've changed upstream. But I don't think this is a change which has to be in a RHEL update.
I'm closing this. The change will be in RHEL6 but not backported to RHEL5.
