Questions about a locale Debian package...
I try to study a Debian package for locale...
Is there somebody working on the subject?
I have severals questions...
First, what must we put in this package?

(maybe only ISO* charmap? (433Ko))
- the source collection of locale definition files? (1533Ko)

Last, I use the WG15-collection.tar collected by Keld Simonsen (firstname.lastname@example.org)
from the DKUUG on behalf of the ISO POSIX WG, ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG15.
I think we should use something like "WG15.??" for the original version and
"locale" for the package name. But i haven't seen anything to ordering
the version number... no special date, no special number... Any idea?
