I believe you are overstating the extent of problems caused by "my
recent commits".  There was one particularly series of commits that I
broke into three to update the iso-3166 data (and the related locale
splits).  Admittedly there were several typos that have been caught
and corrected.

Typically my commits do not extend beyond the localedata/locales
directory, only rarely straying farther afield.  I do test locales as
I work on them and before I commit them.  I do not have a build system
set up, so I do not know if I can perform the requested "make" test or

I am contributing to glibc in order to address the chronic neglect of
localedata tickets, I am proud of the work I've done and find your
unwelcoming tone to be a rather curious way to treat a newcomer that
is only trying to address an area that has been neglected for so long.
 If you did the localedata fixes that were requested, I would not have
to commit at all, but history has shown that they typically just get

Having corrected and updated ISO-639, ISO-4217 and ISO-3166, I should
