Moldovan Cyrillic language locale
Thank you very much for the locale contribution.
Please review our contribution checklist:
Please note that you do _not_ need copyright assignment to contribute locales, however the patch will have to be sent to email@example.com for eventual review.
(a) Use of 'mo' versus 'ro' for locale langauge tag.
Please be aware that as of 2008 the 'mo' tag has been deprecated in favour of using the 'ro' tag. Therefore for a new locale we should probably be using 'ro_MD@cyrillic' for the Moldovan language using Cyrillic script.
(b) LC_IDENTIFICATION category should always be "i18n:2012" since it must specify a published standard of i18n.
(c) Is the mon_thousands_sep and thousands_sep intended to be a non-breaking space instead of a period as is used in original Romanian?
(d) Please fill in more of the LC_ADDRESS entries as provided by other locales e.g. lang_*.
(e) Please test installing and using your locale. Existing checks for invalid LC_IDENTIFICATION categories should have rejected your locale IIRC. Please confirm you have tested compiling and using your locale e.g.

Let me be clear that the tag deprecation is at the ISO 639-1 level.

Moldovan Cyrillic language locale rev 0.2
(a) Moldovan Cyrillic alphabet is different from the Romanian Cyrillic. Romanian Cyrillic alphabet is not used anymore and contained a number of letters such as Izhitsa, Fita and little Yus not found in Moldovan Cyrillic. So i think it's incorrect to use 'ro' tag, if it's possible we should use 'mo' tag.
(e) Tested, looks like everything's ok.
