That is probably an error, I don’t think you want to remove agr_PE.

    +% Mískitu / Miskito (miq) language locale for Nicaragua
    +% Charset: UTF-8

I recently removed all these “% Charset: ...” comments  from the locale sources:

commit 39b20aae21e4635296f4ebc4d80f4eb6c1cb4cbe
Author: Mike FABIAN <mfabian@redhat.com>

    Remove “% Charset: ...” comments from locale sources
    These comments are useless and only confusing.  The encodings used to
    create binary locales from source locales are listed in the
    localedata/SUPPORTED file.  The source files itself are ASCII or UTF-8
    encoded where non-ASCII UTF-8 is currently only used in comments. If
    all locale source files are UTF-8 anyway, there is no need to specify
    that in a special comment.

So I think we don’t need this “% Charset: ...” comment anymore.


    +title      "Mískitu (agr) language locale for Nicaragua"
                          ^^^ typo, should be miq I think.

    +language  "Mískitu"

Should probably be “Miskito”, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miskito_language

“Miskito (Mískitu in the Miskito language)”

so “Miskito” seems to be the English name of this language and
the “language” tag in LC_IDENTIFICATION should contain the English name.

    +copy "es_NI"

It does not seem correct to copy this from "es_NI" because that would give us:

    postal_fmt    "%f%N%a%N/
     %h %e %r%/
    N%z %T%/
    country_name "Nicaragua"
    country_ab2   "NI"
    country_ab3   "NIC"
    country_num   558
    % NIC
    country_car    "NIC"
    % Español
    lang_name     "español"
    % es
    lang_ab      "es"
    % spa
    lang_term    "spa"
    % spa
    lang_lib    "spa"

Which would make lang_name, lang_ab, lang_term, and lang_lib wrong.

Probably it should be:

    postal_fmt   "%f%N%a%N%d%N%b%N%s %h %e %r%N%z %T%N%c%N"
    country_name "Nicaragua"
    country_ab2  "NI"
    country_ab3  "NIC"
    country_num   558
    country_car   "NIC"
    lang_name     "M<U00ED>skitu"
    lang_term     "miq"
    lang_lib      "miq"
