I would like to request the inclusion of a new language in LibreOffice.

ISO 639-3: pdt - Plautdietsch. A variant of Low German, though very much
distinct and different from the ISO 639-3 "nds".

For reference, this is

The language codes as specified by BCP 47 would be:
-> pdt-019 (the main user community)
-> pdt-150 (a secondary community with alternative orthography)

Actually we don't use these UN M.49 numeric area codes, but the ISO 3166
alpha-2 country codes instead.

As the main default locale I'll add pdt-CA

There is no MS-LangID for PDT.

No problem, I'll add a user-defined ID.

The collating order would follow German (de) for now. Though that is
still in flux, and might change slightly in the future.

Unless specifically tailored it will use the Unicode collation algorithm
via ICU.

The quotation marks follow English (en-US).

For how to submit locale data please see

All except the calendar day and month names can probably be inherited
from en-CA using the reference mechanism.
