Although a good idea, I would still like to see an installer do this
rather than the language pack.
Hmm, on MS-Windows language packs are installed by an installer in the
same way as the core application.
The difference is that this installer is localized. There is nothing to
add in the language packs, only to modify them in order they are able to
drive the installer of the core application.

Best regards

Ah .. I am just looking at the language packs for linux distributions. 
Could anyone on the list explain how users install language packs on LO 
(I'm using the .rpm version as reference point here). It looks like they 
come in a ".tar.gz" file and when uncompressed a folder is created with 
a lot of .rpm files. There doesn't seem to be an installer that comes 
along with them and the user is left to use console to install. It this 

If this is the case, I can see why you (Jean-Baptiste) and I had 
different opinions as the installation process is different from the Win 
and Linux platforms. I imagine that this is also the case with the Apple 

So, if this is the case, we would then have to a common installer where 
the user would identify the language pack(s) needed. It doesn't look 
like the language pack installers would be a good place as the language 
installation methods are different from one OS to the other.

Does this make sense?
