In South Africa we have a label manufacturer called Tower. We've created label specifications for their labels.

Comment 2 michael.ruess 2010-08-16 16:11:14 UTC
MRU->OS: please evaluate the patch and eventually apply in 3.4.
Comment 3 Oliver Specht 2010-11-05 09:07:35 UTC
I doubt that it makes sense to add these labels to all localizations of OOo. It would make more sense to create an extension which then should be preinstalled in the localizations where the Tower labels are available. See http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Non-code_extensions about non-code extensions.

os -> localisation are language based not region based. You suggestion also doesn't adequately address the fact that many South African users will us en_US and have no regional variant in which to pull in the labels. Tower labels are available in South Africa and a growing market. Thus they impact the not only the South African region but wherever they are exported. In terms of the current setup we have a situation where in South Africa I see German and American labels that are not available here. So this issue affects the current setup. Its another bug but the correct approach would be to be able to create list of regions where we should display labels or allow users to filter based on their region.

I'm adding this comment to all open issues with Issue Type == PATCH. We have 220 such issues, many of them quite old. I apologize for that. We need your help in prioritizing which patches should be integrated into our next release, Apache OpenOffice 4.0. If you have submitted a patch and think it is applicable for AOO 4.0, please respond with a comment to let us know. On the other hand, if the patch is no longer relevant, please let us know that as well. If you have any general questions or want to discuss this further, please send a note to our dev mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks! -Rob

I haven't reviewed my patch since it was submitted. But this same patch was accepted upstream by Red Hat and has made it into LO, I'm not sure if any changes where made to the patch to allow the merge, but I assume not. So still relevant but I'm not able to check the patch.
