Description Piotr Szymaniak 2012-02-05 22:14:02 UTC
When media-sound/alsa-utils-1.0.25 is emerged, it dumps LC_MESSAGES for languages other then selected by 'LINGUAS="en pl"' in my make.conf.

~ (: qlist media-sound/alsa-utils | grep locale

Actual Results:  
LC_MESSAGES contains unwanted files

Expected Results:  
LC_MESSAGES should contain only files for selected LINGUAS

Comment 1 Tony Vroon (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-02-07 08:29:23 UTC
Is this a regression from to 1.0.25 or has it never worked? Or is it a regression from 1.0.23-r1 to that has carried on into 1.0.25?
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-02-14 16:18:14 UTC
Um, this is taking it a bit too far. If you made it your project to go through the entire tree to look for packages that do not honour LINGUAS, you're going about it the wrong way.

Stop filing these bugs now or only file them for packages you show a clear personal interest for.

Sincerely — I have no idea. I was a heavy user of localepurge until it came out [1] [2] that it's a bug when a package doesn't respect LINGUAS.

It was mentioned in above bug that also alsa-utils installs these items with LINGUAS="en_GB en cs sk ja":


So it's both, /usr/share/locale and /usr/share/man. Watch out for more.
