Problems with locale.alias

Hi again,

On 28.06 I've sent you the letter which is bellow, but
didn't get any answer. Maybe I wasn't clear enought ?
(I'm not very good in english :( ). It would be very nice
if you write what you don't understand.

Subject: Problems with locale


In my opinion file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias
from xlibs_4.1.0-0pre1v1.3_i386.deb package contains
missing and incorrect information about some locales.
Files /etc/locale.alias and /etc/locale.gen from package
locales 2.2.x that comes with libc6 2.2.x has changed
default locale format (from libc6 2.1.x) from format like

to format like this:
deutsch         de_DE.ISO-8859-1
lithuanian      lt_LT.ISO-8859-13

I think file usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias must
updated, because many languages now not have aliases and
if I start program it displays warnings: 
"locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C" and does
work in English language.
for example there are no alias in old format (no ':') for
lithuanian locale - every time I must add this line manualy:
lt_LT.ISO-8859-13                lt_LT.ISO8859-13

I think you must check that all locales from files
/etc/locale.alias and /etc/locale.gen has correct aliases
in file usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias

I found other problems too. Default rusian locale in unix
are #ru_RU.KOI8-R

but file usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias from
xlibs_4.1.0-0pre1v1.3_i386.deb and /etc/locale.alias from
package locales_2.2.3-5_all.deb contains incorrect

russian	ru_RU.ISO-8859-5
russian :	 ru_RU.ISO8859-5

Can you help on these problems ?
