It's probably hard to set a strong policy on locales and I don't exactly know the policy used by glibc upstream. It's quite probable that they decide to include a locale for a language_country combination when the said language has the status of official language in the said country (with an exception for regional languages where the policy is probably to create a locale when the said regional language is noticeably spoken as primary language y a significant part of the population). It's hard to draw lines here, but I don't think that en_CH fits such criteria. otherwise we would end up with hundreds of en_FOO locales... > > Thanks for your other replies.

I wrote mine earlier but it got out of my laptop later which explains why both may appear as slightly contradictory.
