Hi There,

Just to make one thing clear: pap_CW and pap_AW (and pap_BQ) are different
'languages' just like nl_NL and nl_BE are. The locales are different, for
instance what 'ku' is in pap_CW is 'cu' in pap_AW. The days of the week

So I am currently (again, after a delay since june last year) trying to
finish the locale.

In this bug report it
seems to me that some work has already been done to prepare the three pap_

I am coming to this list and have talked with Michael to see where
everything fits in. I am confused by many things. I need a guide :-)

There used to be a pap_AN but AN was dissected into different countries.
pap_CW is for Curaçao, pap_AW for Aruba and pap_BQ for Bonaire.


In my capacity as Sugar Labs Translation Team Coordinator I happen to
do a lot of work on new glibc locales and with language communities
working to "plant their flag" on Linux and FOSS projects.  So much so
that the glibc maintainers have granted me commit access (after three
or four new locales submitted in the last year).  I would very happy
to work with you (off-list) to prepare patches to the glibc localedata
to correct the current inaccuracies.

You probably know that there is an existing pap_AN locale that needs
correction now that AN is  deprecated as a ISO-3166 code.  I would
note that there is an upstream glibc locale bug open against this
existing locale that should be resolved as part of the overall
clean-up of locales for Papiamento in various places.

As for Papiamento in LibreOffice:

From the news feed:

it appears that you may be the only registered Papiamento translator
on the LibreOffice Pootle instance.

Sugar Labs also has a Papiamento language project

This would be a great opportunity to check our language set up
information against that in the LibreOffice Pootle instance (although
I am not sure if LibreOffice uses this information directly).  We
currently use these values to define our language setup for Papiamento

Papiamento (pap)

Plurals and plural equation
(n != 1)

Special Characters:

Again, I would very much like ot work with you (off-list) to improve
the accuracy of Sugar Labs representation of the current state of
Papiamento language L10n.

Warmest Regards,

Sugar Labs Translation Team Coordinator
