Description Bill Nottingham 2010-09-21 20:30:49 UTC
Description of problem:

FF ships some langpacks only in locale-specific form:

langpack-bn-BD@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-bn-IN@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-es-AR@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-es-CL@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-es-ES@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-es-MX@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-fy-NL@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-ga-IE@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-gu-IN@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-hi-IN@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-nb-NO@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-nn-NO@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-pa-IN@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-pt-BR@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-pt-PT@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-sv-SE@firefox.mozilla.org

langpack-zh-CN@firefox.mozilla.org
langpack-zh-TW@firefox.mozilla.org

Given that some of these have other valid xx_<LOCALE> locales that firefox could be run in (example: es_US), firefox should ship a symlink that links from langpack-xx to a reasonable langpack-xx-YY fallback.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

firefox-3.6.7-1.fc14.x86_64

Okay, but we need a map table to choose which one is a default if there are more than one possibility.

Comment 2 Iván Jiménez 2011-01-20 02:17:52 UTC
Any progress on this? It's making fedora looks less polished than ubuntu, where it doesn't happen.

Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2011-01-20 12:04:55 UTC
I'll check it.
