Non-English speaking people need installers in their own language.
Yes of course.
Is there any chance that the installer could be in the lang pack instead
of in the core application ?
The user would download the pack lang in his prefered language and
install it. So the installer asks the user the permission to download or
to provide the path to the main application and, when it's done, install
it using localized dialogs.
I think that the language packs should remain unchanged as they are
often downloaded to enhance people's installation. For example, on my
OOo installations at home I have the regular Eng; UK Eng; French and
Spanish language packs. The installer would have been downloaded 3 times
for nothing as all I wanted was the language pack.
The langpack installer can be smart:
- LibO is already installed -> the langpack adds itself to the available
languages list and returns
- LibO is not installed -> the langpack downloads (if not provided) and
installs the core application.
Although a good idea, I would still like to see an installer do this
rather than the language pack. I would rather like the language packs
left as what they are without adding to them. I particularly like
Bernhard's proposal which to me accomplishes the same as you suggest but
through an intelligent installer.
