  Sorry, it does work, but was broken by my e-mail client.

I don't think that "ka" is the right language tag from ISO 639 for Karbi. "ka" is reserved for Georgian.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karbi_language it should be "mjw".

Can you confirm that mjw_IN would be the correct name for this and update the locale file for this?

Also, you just copy the values from hi_IN. Are the names of weekdays, months, "yes" and "no" etc. really the same?

Yes. mjw_IN is the correct name for the locale. sorry for not looking at ISO-639-3 before. 

i have updated weekdays, months, LC_NAME (need fix) with comments. 'Yes' and 'No' remain the same (comment given).

the locale hasn't been posted to the mailing list or merged yet.  once that is done, the bug will be closed and the milestone updated.

atm we're focusing on tooling for updating/checking localedata files.  once that's in place, we'll look at adding new locales as we'll be able to run sanity checks on them.
