Re: GDM Language list...

Well, there are languages we would support fine that don't have a

(And having gdm attempt to discover/compute what groups are installed
is completely impractical.)

Well, there should be hard-coded list maintained for such languages, which doesn't require any specific support packages and those languages should be listed by default in gdm. But other languages, which requires specific packages' support, should be listed only if their support is (or support packages are) installed. As Ray has mentioned "GDM only show a language in the language list if ...<certain criteria like libc, locale, etc meet>..." that means GDM already does some checks, so I guess there should be some way to check the installed groups.
