c) If you agree with icu's % formatting for your language then update
the translations for X% to be consistent with that formatting. Otherwise
we can fix icu or make a blacklist of languages which should be excluded
from the default icu percent formatting.

Caolán, how can we submit a fix for ICU? For instance, Spanish
formatting should be exactly the same as German, i.e. “#,##0 %”.

So icu gets them via the CLDR, see the chart at
and see the how-to-update guide at

The CLDR is an awesome piece of work, e.g. default paper sizes of
regions and so on. It's worth knowing about it and worth checking that
it's right for your locale to help out all projects.

For LibreOffice I can special case Spanish to have a space between the
value and %, but is it a "normal" space like between words or should it
be a narrow space like Stephen dug out from his German style guide.
