Patches are not reviewed in the bugzilla. To get your patches reviewed, please post them to libc-alpha mailing list using the following guidelines:
The Contribution checklist suggests that locale bugs should go to the libc-locales list. It does not specify that all bugs should go to libc-alpha. Is that truly the case? If so, then that should be clarified on the Contributionss page.
This bug was reported to libc-locales at the time it was filed. Does no one review those posts?
TIA for your help in understanding and clarifying your patch reviewing process.
