The "MDK-approach" looks like the smartest one. I know there are a bug
in RH bugzilla for firefox localisations. Maybe drop some opinions

Then why isn't it done? Fedora offers one of the best OS localisations
in Norwegian in my opinion, so it is really idiotic that this isn't

have any problems with English, but others migth. Plus localisation is
often a criteria to get into public use.
