Description Tambet Väli 2006-03-18 02:11:15 UTC
There are many minor bugs, which can be considered being one localization Bug.

For example:

Most developers are unable to see those bugs by themselves -- instead of seeing that things dont work or getting a warning, at least, they must wait for long cycle of developer-user-developer, which makes getting things work on estonian-like locales a long and painful process.

I think that script should be built, which is able to check all makefiles and other building scripts for dangerous char combinations, like A-Z. If A-Z is found in regular expression, for example in the form [a-zA-Z_], then new form should be suggested, [:alpha:_] in such case.

As there may be cases, where a-z are exactly what is meant, there should be a way to write comments into shell script, which turn checking of a specific line off and include explanation, why. Like turning off errors for some function of c++ application.

I think that mailing list should be made, where questions about localization, unicode support and similar things are discussed.

Bugzilla is not a place for such suggestions, we have gentoo-dev mailing list for this (and don't think we need another one).
