Description Piotr Szymaniak 2012-03-28 09:07:34 UTC
When sys-apps/lshw-02.16b is emerged, it dumps LC_MESSAGES for fr, whereas I have the line 'LINGUAS="en pl"' in  make.conf.

Actual Results:  
LC_MESSAGES contains unwanted file

Expected Results:  
LC_MESSAGES should contain only files for selected LINGUAS

I've open upstream issue for this to see if fish developers are willing to work on it from their side.

It's possible to hack ebuild and remove the messages, but gentoo is moving away from having ebuilds bake in LINGUAS support, unless the build system supports it implicitly.

let's wait and see what upstream says.
Comment 2 Georgy Yakovlev archtester gentoo-dev 2017-02-23 04:06:35 UTC
my fix got merged upstream.

so fish will honor LINGUAS as of version 2.6.0 which is scheduled to be available sometime in Apr or May 2017.

Maybe I'll backport a patch to 2.5.0.
