Let's stay polite and say "this is wrong"..:-). Even if this issue

The locales Robert is talking about is those he wrote for glibc. It
seems that two parallel work have happened for Catalan locales: yours
which was initially targeted at Debian and should have been forwarded
upstream by the locales maintainers....and the work of Robert who
apparently submitted other locales...including a ca_IT locale.

This topic is probably worth being discussed but outside the Debian
BTS and Robert's report for a Catalan keyboard layout.

About the keyboard layout itself, I actually take your word and would
probably recommend not including it in consoel-data. Of course, Robert
coudl perfectly come up with more arguments in favor of it.

That said, I am *not* console-data maintainer and the final word here
should be left to Alastair.
