Yes, Walter has more correctly characterized the issue of missing
upstream glibc locales that was encountered.

Pure speculation on my part, but I suspect that the fix for this will
not only require a push to the glibc upstream, but a pull of those new
locales by Fedora before the errors go away for Fedora packaging

Such is the challenge of being on the leading edge of  "new" languages
in GNU/Linux distros, but it is well worth it.  It also emphasizes my
desire to have a truly polished locale submitted on the first go, as
waiting for patches to trickle down from Gnome into distros could
introduce more variability and frustration than needed.
