Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 22
  • Last updated: 17-Jan-2015
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

This is similar to what we have yum langpacks plugin which is already a Features/YumLangpackPlugin in Fedora but there is one missing thing that this plugin currently does not provide automatic installation of langpacks which is under development. Therefore I am proposing this as basic langpacks plugin only that provides all the required commands to install langpacks.

Benefit to Fedora

Users will get langpacks for the given language installed using single langinstall command. Langpacks plugin also provide commands langremove to remove already installed langpacks, langinfo to find what packages will get installed for any language and langavailable to find if langpacks are available for the given languages.
