please update it to match the coding style, and include a manpage update 
to document it.

there are several issues with the suggested patch:

  * doesn't follow coding style, see live-manual for details.

  * doesn't contain update for the (english) manpage to document the
    'new' behaviour

  * comments are showing wrong examples, locales=ch would result in
    ch_CH which doesn't exist (and thus shows the limitations of the
    suggested behaviour, which is why i think it's not usefull anyway
    and which is why i've removed that in the first place).

  * i'm not entirely sure, but iirc the utf-8 by default is not
    necessary as libc will default to any non-specified locale to the
    utf-8 characterset anyway. would be nice if someone would check
    that.

  * we do want to do things in live config as 'optimized' as possible,
    as it impacts boot time directly (remember, live-config is run
    as first job and *not* in parallel with other initscripts on
    purpose). please use single-statment assignement for the first
    operation.

  * breaks/doesn't work with multiple locales such as locales=en,de

even if all the issues above are fixed, i'm not convinved we do really 
want that. it doesn't fit into live-config to do such 'limited' 'magic'.

limited as indicated above, the only 'gain' here is for people that want 
'xx_XX' locales that they can specify 'xx'. for everyone else (people 
using xx_YY), it doesn't matter.

magic as all parameters to live-config take values that exactely match 
the values you'd put into the respective configuration files itself, 
making it straight forward to handle (no magic) and to document (refer 
to the original configured package).

i assume you mean 'closing the bug', as patches (or any messages for 
that matter) send to the bts cannot be removed.

if you didn't, feel free to reopen the bug with an updated patch.
