Description Dieter Plaetinck (reporter) 2009-10-19 22:43:11 UTC
During the initial setup (and when going back to localisation settings), you're
asked to specify your "region".
the entries are in the form of "language (country)"

I find this weird, as a region != language.
I suggest to put the entries in the form of "country (language)"

Thanks for reporting.
For future reference, please always use the bug template.

Interesting point actually, but this will not be changed as it's currently
possible to "share" a few of the list entries so that less has to be
translated. Also, I think that it's not a big issue - you are still able to
choose your settings. :-)

build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public
Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
