Sourceware Bugzilla – Bug 14925
bn_* 'language' key should be "Bangla"
Last modified: 2012-12-07 00:46:09 UTC
The current language key for bn_BD is "Bengali/Bangla" and for bn_ID it's "Bengali". Apparently, Bengali is an older colonial word. Whereas Bangla is the more modern and official version. It's widely used in the English-speaking world too (UN, BBC, Windows 8).
I'm passing this along from an Ubuntu report. I myself am not well versed in the naming issue. See https://launchpad.net/bugs/991002 and https://launchpad.net/bugs/1070581
(At the least, the slash in "Bengali/Bangla" needs to be escaped, but changing the name to not need a slash is preferrable.)
