68. By Colin Watson on 2013-04-18

Revert previous change since at least language-selector also needs to be
brought into sync, and it's too late for 13.04.

67. By Colin Watson on 2013-04-18

Set LC_TIME to reflect the language rather than the location, as the
lesser of two evils since it includes translations of day and month
names (LP: #1160441).

66. By Gunnar Hjalmarsson on 2013-02-03

languagelist: Use the official name Bangla for the language spoken
in Bangladesh (LP: #991002).

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Add a localechooser-data package containing lists useful for packages
    that create automatic installation scripts.
  - Always support English, unless preseeded otherwise.
  - Drop fallbacks for Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk.
  - Simplify use of locale-gen using the new command-line argument
    facility in Ubuntu's locales package.
  - Add encoding field to languagelist file and use the full SUPPORTED
    file rather than SUPPORTED-short.
  - If the language question was already marked as seen and the answer
    didn't change, then don't recalculate the locale.
  - If OVERRIDE_SHOW_ALL_LANGUAGES is set in the environment, display all
    languages regardless of frontend.
  - Cancel any locale preseeding if the user changes the language.
  - For cases where selecting a different location may imply a different
    dialect of the language, i.e. Portuguese and Chinese, take care to set
    LANG and LANGUAGE to something reflecting the language and LC_NUMERIC,
    LC_TIME, LC_MONETARY, LC_PAPER, LC_NAME, LC_ADDRESS, LC_TELEPHONE,
    LC_MEASUREMENT, and LC_IDENTIFICATION to something reflecting the
    location.

Invert the set of locale categories set in case of a language/location
conflict, so we now set LC_NUMERIC, LC_TIME, LC_MONETARY, LC_PAPER,
LC_NAME, LC_ADDRESS, LC_TELEPHONE, LC_MEASUREMENT, and LC_IDENTIFICATION
instead (LP: #926207).

For cases where selecting a different location may imply a different
dialect of the language, i.e. Portuguese and Chinese, take care to set
LANG to something reflecting the location and
LANGUAGE/LC_MESSAGES/LC_CTYPE/LC_COLLATE to something reflecting the
language (LP: #590108). This roughly matches the behaviour of
language-selector.
