remove supported_locale, language, and country tables


    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Ready for Showcase
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: Release 1.1
    • Fix Version/s: Release 2.2.1
    • Component/s: None
    • Environment:
      Platform: All, OS: All


      country: isn't really used... we only support L10n into one dialect each of
      English, French, and Spanish

      language: possibly contains erroneous rows (see http://tinyurl.com/3fuwh3)

      supported_locale: a locale must be in this table to be used, requiring locale
      country/language combinations to be set ahead of time, rather than simply
      allowing strings to be translated as needed. This is unnecessary... the i18n
      subsystem should be able to choose which country/language combination to use for
      L10n (string translation, date/number formatting, first day of week, etc) in a
      fuzzy manner (Tunisians should still be able to use French, even if
      Tunisian-specific language files don't exist).

      The basic idea is that language and country should be specified in the config
      file and should fail gracefully. For instance, if country isn't specified, but
      "French" language is, Mifos should simply find the best translation possible
      (France/French) and use that.

      Other issues such as number/date formatting and first day of week are not
      covered by this issue.
