How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:

Confusion of the user. There is in use no discoverable difference between the tow layouts.

Expected results:
Only one Swiss German layout or more informations

Comment 1 Vratislav Podzimek 2012-12-03 08:52:45 UTC
This is caused by the way Anaconda uses to get the list of all available layouts. We iterate over languages and add layouts related to each language. Thus 'ch' is added twice -- with 'German' and 'Swiss German' languages. On the other hand we use a dictionary to diplay description for the 'ch' layout and this dictionary contains 'German (German (Switzerland))'. The result is that this item is listed twice.
Because it would be a quite complicated and significant change to list 'ch' once as 'German (German (Switzerland))' and once as 'Swiss German; Alemannic; Alsatian (German (Switzerland))' I'm sending a patch that removes the duplicity resulting in 'ch' listed only once as 'Swiss German; Alemannic; Alsatian (German (Switzerland))' because the 'Swiss German; Alemannic; Alsatian' language is processed before 'German'.

With changes that would be made for bug #859465 this will probably be resolved in a better way.

The same layout should be listed once. How this is realized, is secondary.
