Could you confirm that _both_ should be in the list?
The way we have English for number of countries, we have Punjabi also for India and Pakistan :)
Not sure what went wrong when we start using langtable.

There is only one Punjabi translation (with language code "pa") in transifex:
There are, however, locales for both:
$ rpm -ql glibc-common | grep pa_
Can the same translation be used for both?
 All translations can be listed in alphabetical order here:
 Checked in F19 and F20:
$ rpm -q glibc-common
$ cat /usr/share/i18n/locales/pa_IN | egrep 'language|territory'
% Punjabi language locale for Indian Punjabi(Gurmukhi)
title "Punjabi language locale for Indian Punjabi(Gurmukhi)"
$ cat /usr/share/i18n/locales/pa_PK | egrep 'language|territory'
language "Punjabi (Shahmukhi)"
No. You can see only pa_IN locale is getting updated translations to almost all the active upstream projects. But I don't think someone is contributing to pa_PK locale translations. Both locales are using different scripts. See
As there are no translation for pa_PK in anaconda Punajbi(Pakistan) will not get displayed in language selection list.

Thanks for your clarifications. That is very helpful.
Pravin in Comment 4 said that both should be listed, but that is clearly not possible if they use different scripts and only pa_IN is being actively translated.
