Subject [DL] question concerning NL downloads...or not
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 22:59:57 GMT
Just a quick philosophical questions for the upcoming 3.4 download.

Right now, as I relayed in a previous message, I commented out ALL the
language entries for which we have do not have packs available on our
Apache mirror setup. What this means is that folks with a language string
identifier which we are no longer supporting will probably end up on the
"other.html" page, which is in English.

Another option would be to setup the language array by placing them back in
the process, and,  instead of commenting them out, indicate through one of
the flags already available that the release for the language is NOT
available on the mirror system, as many of them were already. Folks will
then be sent back to their current native language site. There, of course,
they will not find an update, but they won't be any worse off than they are
now in some respects.

Any thoughts on this? Is the latter alternative more desirable -- or not.
