As I recall there is an issue with some mismatch between the list of locales we maintain and those maintained by Fedora? CJL, can you please chime in?

Sounds very possible, we are in the process of trying to get some glibc locales upstreamed.

If the language is not listed here:

https://www.transifex.net/languages/

I would skip it when packaging for Fedora.

You have arrived at the proper resolution for the packaging issue.

The Songhay languages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Songhay_languages

were established on our Pootle server when we took on hosting of AbiWord, including those languages previously hosted by the African Localization project (AnLoc).

We have been fortunate that the Songhay localizer has done some additional work on Sugar L10n besides AbiWord. Given the distribution of this language group (Mali, Niger, Benin, Burkina Faso, Nigeria) it is certainly of interest, but it can be expected that it will be slow to develop to completion. Upstreaming a glibc locale will eventually be needed, but in the meantime, it is another situation where our L10n efforts lead the upstream in minority languages.

This is both good news in that we are creating an entry point for native language computing in this language and bad news in that it's upstream support has not caught up with these embryonic efforts.

I completely agree with your pragmatic approach and appreciate your understanding of why these situations occur.
