Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 22
  • Last updated: 2014-12-12
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Currently when users install packages using dnf with langpacks they have to install the langpacks themselves by hand (if they even know about them).

This is similar to what we have yum langpacks plugin which is already a Features/YumLangpackPlugin in Fedora.

Benefit to Fedora

Users will get langpacks for their language installed automatically if they wish. They can also use langinstall command to install any other language translations.
