Description Robert Millan 2006-04-06 10:58:34 UTC
Valencian (meridional Catalan) locale for Spain with Euro

Note that this locale is almost the same as ca_ES@euro.  The point of having
a separate locale is only for PO translations, which have a lot of social
support and are very appreciated by the Valencian-speaking community.

Attaching ca_ES@valencia and supported.diff for the SUPPORTED file.

Comment 3 Jordi Mallach 2006-04-08 11:38:32 UTC
I have reviewed these changes and I think they are correct for our project to
provide Valencian translations.

If I remain as the contact for this locale, I would probably use my
jordi@gnu.org address though.

Thanks for submitting this, Robert.
Comment 4 Denis Barbier 2006-04-08 20:41:40 UTC
Locale names are in the form 'language[_territory[.codeset]][@modifier]'
See glibc manual, node 'Using gettextized software'.
Thus UTF-8 variant should be called ca_ES.UTF-8@valencia

Oops.  Thanks for the pointer.

Comment 8 Ulrich Drepper 2006-04-26 02:02:31 UTC
That's all bogus.  Adding locales is expensive.  If you want this kind of
support just create symlinks as part of a language pack.
Comment 9 Mike Frysinger 2011-09-19 20:45:46 UTC
could you clarify where exactly the symlink would live ?

in terms of locale data, we can no longer do:
    /usr/lib/locale/ca_ES@valencia -> ca_ES
this is because now we have a locale archive, and that's a single file

the only place left where ca_ES lives is in /usr/share/i18n/locales/, and putting a symlink in there for ca_ES@valencia -> ca_ES has the same compile time costs as a dedicated file

there are people actually shipping ca@valencia message translations (GTK/GLIB to name a few), so clearly there is interest here
Comment 10 Jordi Mallach 2013-11-01 10:40:25 UTC

Can we revisit this?

Debian, Ubuntu and maybe some other distros have been carrying this locale as a patch for many years already, and I'd be happy to see it land on glibc.

If this is to be considered, I'd submit an updated locale definition.
Comment 11 Joan Montané 2013-12-18 09:18:19 UTC
Just for info,

Debian and other distros support ca-ES@valencia locale.

Cooming LibreOffice 4.2 will suppport Valencian locale

CLDR has scheduled adding Valencian locale in 25 release (2Q 2014)

Several valencian translations (ca-ES@valencia) are provided to open-source projects. LibreOffice, Mozilla products, GNOME, KDE...

MS Windows 8 and 8.1 support Valencian locale (ca-ES-valencia) and provide language packs.

So, IMHO, It's time to add ca-ES@valencia locale here, :)
Comment 12 Jordi Mallach 2015-08-08 11:17:38 UTC

I'd like to do a final ping for this bug. It's been ages since most distros have been carrying this, and it would be really great to see it go upstream at long last.

Can I do anything to help move this forward?

ca_ES@valencia locale

This new version replaces the original locale file. Sole change is adding explicit "modification" rights to the licence, so it explicitly conforms to all free software rights.

    New locale ca_ES@valencia [BZ #2522]
    The Valencian (meridional Catalan) locale is basically a copy of the
    Catalan locale. The point of having a separate locale is only for PO
    translations. This locale is already provided by several distributions
    and is already supported by various projects like LibreOffice, Mozilla,
    Gnome, KDE.
    	Aurelien Jarno  <aurelien@aurel32.net>
    	[BZ #2522]
    	* localedata/locales/ca_ES@valencia: New file.
    	* localedata/SUPPORTED: Add ca_ES@valencia/UTF-8.
