Re: [yast-devel] Language::language (and maybe other variables / functions)

Hi hackers,
from version 2.16.3 is yast2-country splitted into 2 packages, the new one is
yast2-country-data, including language data files AND the module
Language.ycp. This means that all of you who want to use any function from
Language.ycp (especially the variable Language::language) can depend your
packages only on lightweighted module yast2-country-data (*) instead of

Additionally, those who need to use only country.ycp or country_long.ycp
(without any other yast2-country API) could just remove their dependency on
yast2-country as these two files were moved to yast2.rpm, starting with
version 2.16.17.


(*) There are 2 reasons for not putting Language,ycp + 52 data files directly
into yast2.rpm: 1) most users wouldn't need it there so it is not necessary
to make the package even bigger and 2) it is easier for me to maintain the
files when they are under one place (trunk/country) in SVN.
