I'm working my way through Evolution for Gnome 2.12, and yet again
I'm having to fill in a huge list of countries. (The file was partly-
translated, so I can't just fill them in from my compendium/tmx.)
I would suggest that Gnome files use the current ISO lists. Having
translated those once, it seems a waste of effort and file space, to
me, to have to do it over and over in different Gnome files.
The ISO-3166 lists include country names, state/province names,
languages and currencies for the world. They are freely available and
up-to-date, and would be an excellent system resource. Most likely,
they are already there.
Would it be a complex task for Gnome files to access these files?
<sigh> back to the huge, redundant list...
