We can split Localization/Guide apart? Or in some places i will have to write another translation as The Euro symbol for the console -> Cyrillic symbols for the console. If this localization guide please give opportunity to write for the nuances of languages other than German. -- Cronolio 23:26, 28 Dec 2015 (UTC)

I just split out the whole Euro symbol stuff into a separate sub page. --Charles17 (talk) 11:08, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
Should be mentioned in this guide about installing an unicode font, right? --Best, Pál (talk) 11:00, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
Also, should be mentioned that that one must to set USE flag 'unicode' in make.conf, right? --Best, Pál (talk) 11:08, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
Wrong place here. Unicode character set is mother of UTF-8 character encoding and is described there.
Regarding the USE flag, that's only useful if eix -c --installed-without-use unicode does not return nothing. --Charles17 (talk) 13:38, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

locale commands of sys-libs/glibc

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 22 November 2016.

Shouldn't be mentioned here that commands used in this article like

/usr/sbin/locale-gen
/usr/bin/localedef
/usr/bin/locale

are specific to sys-libs/glibc? Or do the alternative "system libraries" (sys-libs/musl, sys-libs/uclibc, ...) provide the same commands? Also the term system library as used in the article is not very clear. Is system library identical with C library?

Possible values of LINGUAS

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 28 December 2017.

The guide originally recommended looking at linguas.desc for possible values but the file is going out in a week. We should probably link to some nice reference of what to put there. Michał Górny (talk) 22:12, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

What about USE flag index?--Charles17 (talk) 07:01, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
This is generated from that file. --Michał Górny (talk) 07:21, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
Also l10n.eclass still mentions linguas.desc.--Charles17 (talk) 06:09, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
