Forum OpenACS Development: OpenACS 5.9: Why does acs-lang require ref-countries and ref-timezones?


I understand that acs-lang requires ref-languages. However, it also requires ref-countries and ref-timezones. ref-timezones again requires acs-reference, so that most ref-* packages need to be installed at the end.

No big problem. However, is this intended? I believe somebody wrote that the ref-* package would not be required in general.


acs-lang uses
- the table "countries" provided by "ref-countries" in "locale-new", and
- the table "timezones" provided by "ref-timezones" e.g. in "set-system-timezone"

grep is your friend!
