i'll keep hacking on my python logic as i think it'll be useful
regardless of cldr (e.g. the linting aspect).  i've noticed that
the "week" setting has already regressed in some locales as was
pointed out years ago by Petr.
	https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-locales/2009-q1/msg00011.html
and whenever someone contributes a new file, we really have no
way of doing any sort of automated validation which is bad juju.

beyond that, i'll post updates using cldr operating under the
assumption that the link you posted earlier permits this.  i
believe it does as well.

if someone thinks more clarification/consultation is needed, then
i would say "you drive that and let us know how it goes".

as for my personal opinions posted earlier, those are obviously
mine and not an official statement by the FSF or for the GLIBC
stewards (which i am not one of).  i have no problem posting my
personal statements ;).
