There's no need to go there. Debian already has an Esperanto locale in
the package locales: /usr/share/i18n/locales/eo_EO
It would be better to rename it to eo_XX or have both as synonyms.
So, we just have to add eo_EO (or EO_XX) to
glibc-2.3.2/localedata/locales/SUPPORTED so users can set theire locale
with dpkg-reconfigure locales. I've do not done more than that (just add
eo.po, not well traduced). But changing few byte in a source package
need recompilation of the package... and locales are part of libc6, who
is a *big* package.
So I think this is a minor patch to libc6 (ie locales).
btw, what's are differences between eo_EO you've write and Bertil
Wennergren's one (eo_XX) ? I've just took Bertil one because it is more
recent (2002-08-26 vs 2001-03-29)
