May I know why "India" is listed above "Bangladesh" for Bengali language?
Political conspiracy or.....alphabetical order? :-)
Alphabetical order. :-D
Sorting the country names in the short lists is done while building
localechooser (actually, this is what makes building localechooser so
It is done by the following code:
LOCPATH=`pwd` LC_ALL=debian/locales/$lastlocale.UTF-8 sort -k 2.1 $outfile > $outfile.tmp && mv $outfile.tmp $outfile
In short, country names are sorted according to the given language's
So, what actually sorts India before Bengladesh is the bn_BD locale
title "Bengali/Bangla language locale for Bangladesh"
source "Ankur Group, http://www.ankurbangla.org, http://www.bengalinux.org"
address "Dhaka, Bangladesh"
contact "Taneem Ahmed, Jamil Ahmed"
% TODO: Bengali sorting should be added
Good luck for fixing this...if this needs fixing.
Can you please point me - which line made the problem?
