[Bug 1516358] Re: Can't set language to Dutch (Belgium)


The described behaviour was introduced with the fix of bug #693337.
(Nowadays the list in question is provided by the accountsservice
package via the /usr/share/language-tools/language-options script, which
Tim mentioned.)

Selecting language is equivalent to picking the translation of choice,
so the list of languages in a GUI represents available translations.
Since there is no separate Belgium translation into Dutch, it would make
no sense to present more than one Dutch option in the language list.
Consequently, Peter, nl_NL is good enough.

I'd consider this bug invalid.

  I _can_ however set the language to "Dutch (Netherlands)", which is
