Why can LO Online not deal with locales which are not in the

impossible to implement a locale selection feature.

No, it's not impossible. In fact I've just implemented it.
It adds an optional 'lang' parameter, and if it is present, then it will
take precedence. It it's missing, the Accept-Language header will be used,
which is sent by the browser. The problem with this approach, that if user
asks for a localization in the 'lang' parameter, that is not present, then
the UI will fall back to English, and not to the next preferred language in
the Accept-Language header. (Or maybe not. I did not try.)

Seems a pretty weird list, for one thing "gd-ie" does not exist as a
locale. I mean, it's on the list but there is no such thing as "Scottish
Gaelic (gd) - Ireland (ie)". Scottish Gaelic is not an Irish locale. At
all. It's like have fr-UK or es-FR.

I did not find a better list. Maybe it's weird, maybe it's incomplete. For
example I can select Kurdish and Yoruba from Firefox -> Preferences ->
Content -> Languages -- the two examples you gave in your other email. But
with the 'lang' parameter, it is no longer important, what browsers

I hope this helps. Best regards.
