is the locale file i made

Dear maintainers,

Please find attached the locale definition for nhn_MX to be
considered for inclusion in glibc. This language name is Central nahuatl and is spoken in the central part of Mexico.

Thanks!

Although commonly found in glibc locales, this license language is problematic.

% Distribution and use is free, also
% for commercial purposes.

See  "localedata licencing issues"
http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=11213

See also:
Many locales files do not permit modification
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=555168

For now, I would recommend changing this to:

% This file is distributed under the same license as the glibc package.

Comment 4 Chris Leonard 2012-08-23 05:14:31 UTC
Very, very minor point about the yesstr and nostr comments,

% ^[quema].*
yesstr  "<U0071><U0075><U0065><U006D><U0061>"
% ^[ahmo].*
nostr   "<U0061><U0068><U006D><U006F>"

should probably be

% quema
yesstr  "<U0071><U0075><U0065><U006D><U0061>"
% ahmo
nostr   "<U0061><U0068><U006D><U006F>"

Other then this very minor point, this is looking very good.

Dear glibc maintainers, this locale is ready to go and needs to be committed.  Without this locale landed, this language effort cannot move forward in GNOME L10n.  Please attend to this ASAP.
Comment 7 Chris Leonard 2012-09-22 00:34:06 UTC
Dear glibc maintainers, 

Please land this locale.  Would it help if someone from the gnome-18n team were deputized to review localedata tickets?  Locales seem to be of much more interest to the i18n/L10n folks than to the glibc developers.
Comment 8 -EMail Hidden- 2012-09-26 15:36:37 UTC
If 'a language effort cannot move' without this locale, it is a GNOME bureaucracy problem, isn't it? There is nothing to prevent localization whether this locale is included or not.

Thanks, commited now.
