Bug#251453: xlibs-data: syntax error in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias ?

Package: xlibs-data
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-1
Severity: normal

I did not succeed in finding out the exact syntax for this file.  
Apparently, the file is the result of a concatenation of two files with
different formats.

The header states that lines should be like

alias-name	target-name

but it also contains lines of the form 

alias-name:	target-name

According to my experiments, the first form is ignored, while the
second works smoothly: adding

en_US.ISO-8859-15: en_US.ISO8859-15

allows me to set LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-15 and launch xterm with Xlib
honouring my locale. (see #251000, and possibly merge)

best regards.
