Bug#70876: Security upload to stable broke zh_TW.Big5 locale (Missing LC_COLLATE)

Package: locales
Version: 2.1.3-13
Severity: normal

Hello Ben,

Yes, here is another bug that is similar to #70806.  The zh_TW.Big5
is broken because the file /usr/share/locale/zh_TW.Big5/LC_COLLATE
is missing.  This especially affects GTK/GNOME programs, as no Chinese
characters can be shown at all.  Please fix it ASAP and upload it to both
security and to proposed-update.

IIRC, this problem has happened before.  Check the changelog:

glibc (2.1.2-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * The "One more week to go" release.
  * debian/patches/localedata-SUPPORTED:
    Oops, this patch wasn't actually being applied.
    eo_EO, zh_TW.Big5, and es_AR should be [back] in locales now.
    Back out zh_CN, the definition is broken.
  * Remove sparc from HAVE_LIBC{4,5}, we want to install our ldd.
  * debian/patches/sparc-linux-ldd.dpatch: New file.
    Restore missing patch (in ChangeLog, not in source).
  * debian/sysdeps.mk: Tighten alpha shlib_depend to libc6.1 (>= 2.1.2-1).

Indeed, zh_TW.Big5, eo_EO, and es_AR are all missing either LC_CTYPE or
LC_COLLATE.  So yes, please fix ASAP.
