With 4.) they have been removed from FreeBSD when "Make upgrade" is run after rebuilding. Does FreeBSD have a cleanup like that, and did you run it? If not, then maybe that needs to be updated. with 3.) That's a bit like saying changing the color of shoe laces needs instructions for people to learn how to adjust. Run "locale -a" to see what's available on the system. This has always been true. Attempting to switch to a locale that doesn't exist results in staying in "C" locale, which is quite obvious. with 2.) Could be combined with 1.) but in any case, there really shouldn't be POLA on anything that has no standard. Should you announce every time you add a locale too, in release notes? Really "locale -a" should tell the whole story. 1.) A paragraph on removed locales is fine. Those removed have been removed because they are a) likely unused and b) if used, they are used by mistake. in this case you hit c) where the testsuite probably chose the "wrong" locale in the first place. Note that GCC did this too with their libstdc++ testsuite and that was fixed this weekend (a huge patch to GCC 6 upstream).
