  1. Bug#453041: Country Liechtenstein not in country list when selecting German as language in installer

    Package: installation-reports
    Version:

    When installing debian, when choosing German as language, the country
    Liechtenstein isn't in the list for German speaking countries. It would
    be nice also Liechtenstein having in this list, because German is the
    only official language in Liechtenstein.

    When choosing other, it is possible to select it then, but the local
    keyboard settings seem to be wrong, because they are German instead of
    Swiss German (should be the same as selecting Switzerland as country).

    I am using Debian GNU/Linux Lenny (Testing), kernel 2.6.22-2-686

    Greetings
    Josef

    Countries that are displayed after the language selection are
    countries for which a locale with the given language exists in the
    locales package. Not countries for which the given language is an
    official language. This is often the same list because, of course,
    locales have been written for language/country combinations that make
    sense.

    The solution to this problem is writing a de_LI locale, which would
    definitely make sense.

    Writing locales is not that hard: pick up a similar locale on your
    system (/usr/share/i18n/locales/de_DE) and modify the
    country-dependent parts to fit the new country. Then name it
    appropriately (here de_LI).

    It of course needs some knwoledge of the said country and the said language.

    The only tricky part is that locales files use "Uxxxx" notations which
    makes writing them quite tricky. Thankfully, Denis Barbier wrote the
    attached scripts, in the past, that help converting file back and
    forth from UTF-8 to Uxxxx notation.
