Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-11-15 10:52:02 UTC
I love being able to have British spelling, but I find that I am
terribly used to the C locale's sort order. It would be extremely
nice to have a separate page for LC_COLLATE settings.

Something like a second page which explains "You have chosen foo for
your language. This also affects the way results of commands involving
'sort' 'tr' and other utilities will be displayed. Some people prefer
to have these results sorted case-sensitively, with any capital letters
coming before any lower-case letters. How do you prefer this sorting

    [  ] AaBbCc...XxYyZz       [   ] ABC..XYZabc...xyz
         LC_COLLATE="foo"            LC_COLLATE="C"

Of course, once this is in, someone will want LC_MONETARY, and someone
else something else, but I think LC_COLLATE no longer being C is 
throwing people. See bug #17204 for an example.

Reassigning to redhat-config-language. (I have a slightly hard
time imagining how such an option could be presented to the UI
in a friendly way for new users.)

I'm with Owen.  I don't really want to start down the path of making rather
obscure options presented in the UI.  redhat-config-language has a really simple
UI and I want it to stay that way, especially since I want anaconda to pull it's
UI in for the next release, they way that it currently does for
