Hello,

Would it be possible to change the locale fr_CH and it_CH to have monday as the first day of the week ?
It has already been accepted for the locale de_CH, that is in the same country (Switzerland).

I have sent a patch with the 2 files modifications (sha1: 0b1697b)
The patch is added in the email.

It would help a lot, as for each glibc update, we have to do these changes again.

Sorry if it was not done correctly, it is the first time I do this.

Thanks

do you have links to standards to justify the change ?
we like to note this info for reference/historical tracking.

we don't use signed-off-by here, but regardless of that, using "xxx" here
is both incorrect and pointless.  we already have your e-mail address and
contact info since you sent this e-mail to the list.

I thought it did:
[master 0b1697b] Locale fr_CH and it_CH: change first day of the week
  2 files changed, 8 insertions(+)

It didn't ?

As it was accepted already for de_CH, I thought it would be also for fr_CH and if_CH.
I asked a few people about a reference that monday was the first day of the week, but nobody can find it.

Monday as the first day of the week is normal for us since a very long time.

Yes just saw that, sorry.
I am used to mailing list hiding the email address for the people sending an email to it and just showing the username we chose when we subsrcribed to it.

i think git is confusing you ;).  "committed" in the e-mail subject means
it has been *pushed* to the common/public repo.  it does not refer to you
making a local commit to your personal fork.

that's generally not how open source works.  we work in the open and do
not hide ourselves.

Ah ok, I didn't understand it that way.
Followed the instructions here: https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Contribution%20checklist,
and saw "For a patch that is already committed:", sorry (for me it was committed it but waiting for reject or approval).

Then, for a request with a patch, I should have used: [PATCH] ?

It was more for the archive list on internet and spam bots (even if the '.' and '@' are replaced), as I am not hidden for the people receiving this mailing list. I meant the mailing lists I use generally remove the email address when the email is archived online.

It is probably because ISO 8601 is a Swiss standard.
ISO 8601 says that Monday is the first day of the week.

best regards.

Is this reference enough to be accepted ?

I have read, in a few bugzilla asking to change this first day of the week (for others countries), that it was refused
because there wasn't an official document refering to the first day of the week in the country.

Why would there be a document like this when it has always been like this (as far as I have found)?
If there is one, it is probably not known by a lot of people, and really hard to find.

It was accepted for: de_CH, wae_CH (I don't even know what is Walser)

and for:
an_ES, ast_ES, bg_BG, br_FR, ca_ES, ce_RU, crh_UA, csb_PL, cv_RU, cy_GB, da_DK, de_AT, de_BE, de_DE, de_LU, el_GR, en_DK, en_GB, en_IE, es_CO, es_CR, et_EE, eu_ES, fi_FI, fr_BE, fr_FR, fr_LU, fy_NL, ga_IE, gl_ES, gv_GB, hsb_DE, ia_FR, it_IT, kw_GB, lb_LU, lij_IT, lt_LT, lv_LV, mhr_RU, mk_MK, mt_MT, nb_NO, nl_BE, nl_NL, nn_NO, oc_FR, os_RU, ro_RO, ru_RU, ru_UA, sl_SI, sr_ME, sr_RS, sr_RS@latin, sv_FI, sv_SE, sw_KE, tr_TR, uk_UA, wa_BE

PS: I have removed the [COMMITTED] in the subject, as it shouldn't be there.

Maybe these links ? They are in german/french/italian but not english, so I used google translate...

thanks for the links.  i don't have an answer right $now for your
request, but it should be resolved before the next release.  i'm
doing a full audit of the week values across locales and will be
sure to double check/include your update.  hang tight!
