Hi Eddy,

Your comments in ro_RO are very helpful, but they must not appear within a
list, like in 'day'.

Eveything looks fine, I will commit your patch against the locales package.
The RON currency code has already been added and will be recognized by
localedef 2.3.6-2, locale changes will be applied against 2.3.6-3.
This 2-step approach is to ensure that locales are not broken in
unstable, since locales is Architecture: all and may be available before

IMO you do not have to worry much about this field, I do not know of any
application that uses it.

One last question though: what is the first day to be displayed by a
calendar in Romania?  You may set first_weekday in LC_TIME accordingly
(1=Sunday ... 7=Saturday)

You may also define
  lang_term "<U0072><U006F><U006E>"
  lang_lib  "<U0072><U0075><U006D>"
