Bug Description

We have outdated translations in date/time - e.g. "Dilu" instead of "DiL" for "Mon" for Scottish Gaelic (gd/gd_GB). The strings appear most notably when you click on the time in the top bar on the right, and the calendar appears.

How do I go about furnishing you with the correct translations? What can I do to help?

ETA: I had a look at the locale in the current glibc and it's correct there.

Can you let us know exactly which data are not correct? You mentioned "abday". Are there other things?

I have attached a picture and underlined the wrong terms in it - this is how we became aware of the issue.

I find the glibc stuff very hard to proofread, because most of it is hidden behind raw unicode. The current glibc seems to be correct though - at least the human-readable parts of it.

Ok, thanks. Then let's take months and weekdays (including abbreviated) from the latest glibc, and hope that's an improvement.

I think this is a good strategy. Thanks for acting on this so quickly :)

Maybe you can just replace the whole locale file?

I failed to replace the whole file, since the old one is ISO-8859-15 encoded, and the patch system doesn't like that. Think it will have to wait until the package is updated with new upstream data.

Nothing is ever easy :(

Let's just go with the month and weekdays for now then, this will already be a great improvement :)
