Kabyle locale file
please use the same header as other current locales:
copy the first ~10 lines over
>title "Kabyle locale for Algeria"
Kabyle language locale for Algeria
these are all incorrect -- just copy them from en_US (see the link above)
>% yennayer, Furar, MeÉ£res, Ibrir, Maggu, Yunyu, Yulyu, Æuct, Cutembir, Tuber, Unbir, Dujenbir
delete all these comments that just translate the <Uxxx> values. we've been dropping them from locales.
>% Accer, Arim, Aram, Ahad, Amhad, Ssem, Ssed
just to be sure -- the first day here is Sunday right ?
you should also define week in LC_TIME:
please define currency_symbol too
copy ber_DZ for both of these
these should be:
please fill out all the fields here
this should be 012
pretty sure this should be DZ
can you fill out the other fields here please ?
Thanks Mike for the excellent review!
>please fill out all the fields here
What do you mean by "all the fields"? Is this list: name_fmt, name_miss, name_mr, name_mrs, name_ms?
(In reply to Claude Paroz from comment #2)
those 5 fields, and name_gen. not all languages have concepts/translations for all the fields, but it seems unlikely that this one has none.

Yes, this looks like it is ready for commit. - cjl
The bug is still new? Please Would you like commit?
If there is something wrong, let me know. I'am a Kabyle native and opensource kab localizer.

My apologies. Commits for new locales only happen when you're working directly with a community developer that can commit this code for you. Maintainers are listed here: https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/MAINTAINERS.
The review by Chris Leonard in comment #6 is proof enough that kab_DZ should be ready for commit. Chris is known in the community and has reviewed such patches in the past (though he is not a glibc developer).
Have you been using the new kab_DZ locale? Is it working well? Does it match what is being submitted here? Which distro is including the locale?
Thanks for help.
I can't understand much more about technical devs . I followed a link when I was trying to start the kab locale for openSUSE.
The kab localization of openSUSE is now ongoing but, it seems that we need kab on glibc to release our locale.
We are also working on the kab locale on CLDR (please see http://st.unicode.org/cldr-apps/v#/kab/). You will find all needed data.
The kab locale is now available on all Mozilla products and content (Firefox, Thudenrbird..), Odoo and much more.
Note the iso 639-2 code of the Kabyle language is kab. Kab-DZ is same as kab. There is no other variant for our language.
Please, let me know if you need more information
The locale file was approved by Chris, a known glibc language reviewer more than a year ago. I struggle to find reasons for why this file was not yet committed.
:) It took a lot of time.
If there is something wrong with the file, somethig we can add, please let us know.
thanks for help
