Tooraj Jamal commented on LANG-1048:
------------------------------------

I wanna take care of this.
Shall I start it?
Are you OK with [~jamessawle] 4 method suggestion?

> As part of a [recent ML discussion|http://markmail.org/message/3yvgfm2fuqkvwb7q] it was
noted that {{BooleanUtils.toBoolean(String)}} is biased towards English speakers.
> We could match the behaviour of this method for non-English users by adding:
> {code:java}
> boolean toBoolean(String str, String... trueStrings)
> {code}
> and match in a case-insensitive fashion. Anything that doesn't match a true string is
false. 
> The current {{toBoolean(String)}} method would just be a special case of this new method,
with the arguments {{toBoolean(str, "true", "on", "y", "t", "yes")}}.
