Sorry for the late answer (I'm currently on holidays without net
access and my mail will go out only on Sunday).
Indeed, yes, I'm the author of this locale and I proposed it to
Piarres as a "Basque in France" locale is nearly mandatory because the
Basque country (Euskadi) is shared between France and Spain and there
are many people speaking the Basque language (Euskal) in the french
part of Euskadi.
When I have some spare time, I try working on the most missing locales
such as the "sr_CS" one fo which I also recently filed a bug report.
I make my best for understanding the locale mechanism and not to mess
up when building a new one. Indeed I grabbed a few tools from the
translate.org site (from which come the South African locales for
which I also file a BR)
Piarres had the locale reviewed by his fellow Basque translators and
this is why he filed the bug report with my agreement.
About the credit for the work, I give you the entire liberty of giving
the credit to the Debian Project more than myself alone. I consider
this a collective work more than my own work.
