Description drouizig 2010-01-23 13:08:07 UTC
Please could you add "As Soon As Possible" Shimaore, Shibushi and Tahitian to
the list of supported languages.

Those languages are spoken :

* In Mayotte Island (Overseas collectivity of France) for Kibushi and Shimaore.
Mayotte will be soon a full "overseas department of France" in 2011.

The ISO language codes are:
swb-YT for Shimaore (cf. )
buc-YT for Kibushi (cf. )

* In Tahiti (French Polynesia)

The ISO language code is:
tah-PF for Tahitian (or "reo Tahiti", cf. )

I may take part in some efforts to bring spellcheckers for these
languages, in the very short future.

Grabbing issue and assigning to spare time account.

FYI: if ISO 639-1 two letter codes exist, those are to be used instead of
639-2/639-3 three letter codes, so it will be ty-PF instead of tah-PF.

We usually use the main names given in the Ethnologue, so it would be Maore and
Bushi, see and

Verified in CWS locales 33.
Bushi, Maroe and Tahitian now available as Western languages.
Note comment of ER above about the correct names. I adjusted the summary accordingly
