[Bug localedata/14943] New: Artificial languages

             Bug #: 14943
           Summary: Artificial languages
           Product: glibc
           Version: unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: localedata
    Classification: Unclassified

Dear Ulrich Dreeper,
Dearest developers,
The time has come to start discussing seriously about supporting artificial
languages, such as Esperanto.
Dreeper, during the last years, closed some related bugs as WONTFIX not only
without giving any reason[1][2][3][4] but also *insulting* people speaking
artificial languages[5].
I'm telling you to seriously discuss about it without creating any walls.
I hope that you reconsider the fact that artificial languages do exist and they
are not useless (see Wikipedia page for Esperanto[6]).
I think that it is too silly not to add support for such languages because they
are used actively and they are not simply "forks" of other languages
Debian[7] and Mandrake (Mandriva)[8] support eo_EO locale by default, Arch
Linux does support eo locale through AUR[9] and I don't know about Ubuntu.
What about fixing this problem by default inserting a patch upstream? In my
opinion it should be the most reasonable option to choice.
I hope you read this bug report and make the most intelligent choice.
I'm looking forward to receiving your answer,
- MM
