Right thanks.

Cool, that's interesting.  Is it in version control somewhere?
A python binding might also help adoption by anaconda/yum.

Ok thanks, libreoffice- looks good.

Well I would be happier to collaborate on a good solution. :)
Certainly the current mapping of locales to langs/scripts
is often awkward - so I hear what you're saying.

As you know the main fedora-wide problem with langpacks naming
currently is not so much the language suffixes but the variety
of upstream naming for them.

Anyway perhaps if Fedora langpack subpackages provided something
like "%{name}-langpack(<BCP47code>)" that might help to simplify things.
Some standard rpm macros for langpacks might be able to help with that.
Probably need to think more how to map optimally into yum-langpacks searching.

Maybe comps lang groups should use BCP-47 too.
That would be ideal for Chinese at least, and maybe
some other langs.

Do you want to open an rfe against yum-langpacks for
BCP-47 support to track this anyway?

I would be interested to hear more on your ideas.
