As we always need a good locale database for GNU Classpath, I was thinking of a way to get it. The ICU locale converter is only partially satisfying as it does not have any collation rules generator (at least). I've seen that[1][2] has begun a new standard file format to interchange locale data. It is purely written in XML form and looks well documented. On IBM[3], we can find the locale database waiting to be converted.

This looks like a very promising way to get good locale data for GNU
Classpath. Is there a statement from IBM[3] that the locale database is
free for use by projects like ours (GPL compatible)? If not, then we
need to have a contact address at IBM to explicitly ask for permission.
(I can do that if you want.)



Hi Mark,

The Copyright & Permission Notice for LDML and the locale data repository is contained in the following file:

It's the same IBM Licence "do what you want with it" from what I can see.
