Re: Full install from cd achieved (RFC)

Galician, not Galacian, or Galego as it is said in Galician is a language
spoken here in Galicia, on the north west of Spain, Galician and Portuguese
are brothers, they once were the same language, Galego-Portugués.

Jacobo adds: There is another Galicia between Poland and Ukraine but it is
unrelated to this language in particular.

Yes, I have realised about that :-)

Termwrap is an script that is run on the first reboot of the machine to set
the LANG and LC variables but its main function is executing a command under
the apropiate terminal so that this terminal supports the characters of the
language we may be using.

Oops looks I missed something :-)

I don't mind where we put it, it was just easier to put it in debootstrap.

But we must arrive to a consensus about this and other things or otherwise
it won't be on either and we won't have boot floppies :-(

Yes, it is for that, and also and most important, so that when we reboot to
run dpkg-reconfigure on base-config it get's the locales compiled.
