Subject: Please include alias for english
Date: Thu, 6 Sep 2001 18:58:30 +0200
Package: locales
Version: 2.2.4-1
Severity: wishlist
File: /etc/locale.alias

 Subject says it all.  Please add:

    english     en_US.ISO-8859-1

 to the aliases.

 (in case you are wondering, gdm sets LANG to "English", and some
 programs turn into a PITA about it.  Yep, "unset LANG" in my .bashrc
 does the trick, but I don't see why adding this alias could be a
 problem, modulo flamewars about "english" being en_US instead of en_UK
 or viceversa, but if that's indeed a problem, I could then raise a
 complain about "spanish" being aliased to "es_ES")

 Thank you in advance,

Find a consensus on whether english should be en_US or en_UK and I'll do
it. As I fail to think you will find this consensus, I'm closing this
bug.

 *blink*

 I actually made a mistake on the bug report, I think.  Could "english"
 be aliased to "en" (or "en@ISO-8859-1")?

 PS: While I have your attention... did you get my mails about the LDAP
 interface to the BTS?  From what I can see the indexes are not being
 regenerated and the problem is that your script uses find on a symlink,
 which it won't follow.  I can't log into master right now to check.

There is no such locale listed in SUPPORTED. So, no go :)

Yes, I got those emails. It is a little more complex. The db/ directory
is now hashed into subdirectories. I need to account for this, since the
file layout was part of the usage.

I was just forwarded information about a destructive, trojan-type virus called "TROJ_JESTRO.A" which affects all Windows PCs.  It isn't a hoax, as confirmed here by Trend Micro:

http://www.antivirus.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=TROJ_JESTRO.A

("This Backdoor program creates two Trojan files, TROJ_BIONET318.A and TROJ_HUKKEY.A. It also shares an infected systemÂ’s local drives, C:\ to Z:\, which it hides with a dollar sign.")
