I have taken a quick look at the scripts for nl_NL and I have a couple of
- - The test is for nl_NL@euro.
However, d-i currently does not (yet) set the locale to nl_NL@euro, but
to nl_NL. Do the tests still work in that case?
I think the same goes for other euro countries.
- - For xfree86-kbd the LAYOUT is set to 'nl'.
This looks to me to be a real problem as most keyboards in the Netherlands
have a "US Intl." keyboard layout. Only a minority have the Dutch layout.
In fact, the default in kbd-chooser is the US layout for NL.
So IMHO there should be a test of the keyboard layout based on the layout
already selected by the user in kbd-chooser and not a straight test based
If a choice _must_ be made, I'd prefer the default to be 'us'!
- - Setting value for dictionaries-common to 'nederlands (Dutch)' and for
ispell to 'dutch' is only OK if package idutch is installed.
How is that guaranteed?
- - One of the strengths of D-I IMHO if that it is very easy to install a
system that has English as main language but Netherlands as country,
and thus has correct defaults for e.g. timezone and mirror.
I would not like to loose that.
I'm not sure how valid these comments are as I only have a very rough
understanding of how this package would be used.
