Forum OpenACS Development: Language auto-detection
It is possible to set the system wide locale to "auto", so every visitor is greeted in his own language.
Where can I post a patch? What's prefered, a patch file, or the modified files?
You can post a patch in the bug-tracker:

(Speaking of 5.1 and HEAD)
As far as I see, in the current implementation a browser locale allways overides the site-wide locale, while with the "auto" approach both the admin and the user would be free to use auto detection or not. The "auto" approach would make it also a bit easier to switch between settings for users, "Autodetect" appears in the list of locales so they can easily switch.
The current implementation is more refined than mine. Perhaps both implementations can be combined.
