[Bug 106381] Re: Locale es_MX doesn't have "t_fmt_ampm" and "am_pm" defined


Hi Dan,

Thanks for your patches. I'll be happy to help you get the am/pm thing
into the Ubuntu archive, if you do the following:

1. File an upstream bug. The locale definitions in Ubuntu origin from
glibc, and we don't usually modify them without at least trying to have
the changes applied upstream.


2. In the upstream bug report, please provide some kind of evidence that
the am/pm time format is in use in written Spanish in Mexico. It could
be links to e.g. governmental sites or major news sites. (There are some
old links in comment #6 above, but they are either broken or don't
support 'the case'.)

Bug #1288843, which is similar to this one, was fixed that way.
