Re: [PATCH 4/4] ja_JP locale: Add entry for the new Japanese era [BZ #22964]

Hello TAMUKI-san,

Thank you for continuing my work and adding this new patch.  Please
see below:

I believe this patch is very urgent and must be reviewed and pushed
as soon as possible.  If that's helpful, please consider splitting
it as a separate patch.  If that's helpful please consider rebasing
it against the current master (because I believe that now it depends
on the other patches of the series) or even separating it from the
test cases.  I believe you will want to backport it to some older
branches and the patch may not be easily applicable if it depends
on other patches.

I think that this new feature is so important that it deserves some
longer description.  However, I don't have any proposal at the moment
and I will no longer complain if other people find this description
