[debian-devel:11612] Re: locale-*

I have read this topic at the debian-devel@debian.or.jp, 
in Japanese. I tried to do my best to translate the topic,
but I may did something wrong in translation.

I hope someone who knows this more better than me will
answer your question.

# If he writes the answer in Japanese, on -devel@JP, then
# I will try to translate it again.

the package of i18ndata has the locale data for ja_JP, zh_CN, and zh_TW
in source. But it seems not to have the locale data for ko and vi.
So your comment may be valid. Can anyone on the list check this ?
