Hi,

To make matters worse, a whole bunch of CG Congo locales was added with

commit c69221a2f12331cadee4dbed50de30bf8aa230b0

Add/modify locales & language list entries for Congolese languages

https://git.libreoffice.org/core/+/c69221a2f12331cadee4dbed50de30bf8aa230b0

which even (now IMHO wrongly) came with axk-CG locale data and (correct)
iyx-CG locale data. Apparently I tried to disentangle some of the mess
already in

commit 66308dd049b98476127265e9cc9ac32f19dfccaf

changes to Congolese locales

https://git.libreoffice.org/core/+/66308dd049b98476127265e9cc9ac32f19dfccaf

introducing LANGUAGE_USER_AKA_CONGO instead of plain LANGUAGE_USER_AKA
(which mainly would be Central African Republic) (Aka actually is
a synonym of Yaka in this context, not the other Aka language) but
still, now I wonder if there was a reasonable intention of having both
axk-CG and iyx-CG or if that was an oversight.

Any clue, someone? In particular Jeremy?

Thanks
Eike
