The ISO codes package is being translated under the Translation Project
and listed at
See the isoXXXX translation domains in the middle of the page.
The relation between the two (Translation Project and iso-codes) is that
the former is higher upstream. Translators deal with the Translation
Project and regularly the guy from Debian makes a release of the
translations. Is that correct?
Another package from the Translation Project, xkeyboard-config is used
by gswitchit, the keyboard switching tool in GNOME, to provide the names
of the keyboards in the local language. I am not sure if such a
dependancy exists already.
Sergey (author of gswitchit)?
It looks more canonical to me to make the dependancy to the Translation
