Once upon a time, I heard Adrian Bunk say

That's one way to solve the problem. I raised the issue about locale-th in 
debian-glibc once before I pass through the nm-process, but didn't file 
the bug report. The glibc team is kindly enough to include th_TH in locales
package (since 2.1.3-4). I already mentioned that the upstream release
contained some fixes.

But I haven't raised the issue about the licensing problem to glibc team yet,
I just receive a note from upstream authur about the license today.

May be I should file a bug report and wait first :)
