Ok, I've uploaded an alpha locale package in my directory on master...
I use /usr/share/locale...
But it's inconsistent with the base package which provide
a empty /usr/lib/locale/en_GB directory...

I think ftp://dkuug.dk/i18n/WG15-collection is the original site for the
WG15-collection... But original "archive" WG15-collection.linux.tar.gz
is from ftp://i44s10.info.uni-karlsruhe.de/pub/linux/ctype. I'm not sure.
