Lintian Reports

W incorrect-locale-code

All reports of incorrect-locale-code for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package appears to ship locales for a language but uses an incorrect locale code as a subdirectory of /usr/share/locale. This usually results in users of the intended target language not finding the locale. The language codes used in the locale directories are those from the ISO 639-1 and ISO 639-2 standards, not those usually used as TLDs (which are from the ISO 3166 standard).

When both standards define a language code for a given language, the ISO 639-1 code should be used (i.e. the two lettered code).

Lintian only knows about some commonly-mistaken set of incorrect locale codes.
