Dear Fr. Cyrille,

Thank you for the locale submission.  What you've submitted is not a
full SWORD locale.  There are a number of missing sections.  I also have
no expertise in the language or people group you are targeting with this
locale.  Can I ask you to fill out this locale file and confirm that
this now successfully works for you.  You can use the locale wiki page
and the existing locales as references:


I am happy to commit changes if you confirm things are working, but I
cannot, right now, spend time to test and debug this new submission.  I
wish I had more time to spend on testing and fixing submissions, but I
usually do a sanity check and risk evaluation on most submission--
especially when they deal with languages which the submitter is much
more qualified than me to judge if things work well for the language.

To help, I am happy to post a build of Bishop which includes your
locale, once it is complete, if you'd like this to help you test.

Thank you again for your work on this and so much else,
