Description Christian Rose 2002-10-09 19:03:25 EDT
Tested with RHL 8.0 and using sv_SE.UTF-8.

The first parts of the locations in the time zone tab show up translated into
Swedish, but not the additional strings such as for example "most locations" and
"Alaska Time - west Alaska" as shown in the screenshot.

Hmm, the comments are coming from /usr/share/zoneinfo/zone.tab, which is part of
glibc-common.  Translating that part will be difficult.  I'd rather trash the
whole thing.

I think that the timezone stuff should be rewritten so that the user simply
picks their timezone rather than the nearest city.  For example, why should a
user in Miami, Florida have to pick New York instead of Eastern Time Zone.  I
think Windows has a much more elegant solution to this.  

I'm going to mark this bug as 'wontfix' and instead try to find the time to
write a better timezone selector.
