This is very convenient, as the language maintainer just has to send the PET to me and I will upload it to for all Puppy builds to use.

[i]Slightly off-topic but relevant to the internationalisation of Puppy:[/i] Zigbert has raised in the Forum the issue of why UTF-8 is off by default. Perhaps it is an appropriate time to consider whether UTF-8 should be the default setting?

"I have added some files to [url=]langpack_ru and it's size now is 1020kB. Maybe it's too much. I have added mo files for applications, locales for Zigbert apps etc. I have also added scripts for automatic setup for ru,us Xkb layouts while installing package. I have tested it on Racy-5225. Only issues I have noticed: pup_event_frontend_d: lines 152, 381 and xmessage (no UTF-8).
