Why is there no American English option in addition to the normal British English? Can you consider adding it please?

Installing a locale involves unzipping a file into a folder. American English is so similar to British English that most of the work is practically already done. Some extensions already use a subset of British English identical to American English anyway.tierra wrote:Installing additional locales requires extra updates and maintenance that's just not worth the burden or time we have to add it

In that case, maybe we could rename "British English" to just "English"?

Maybe, although that could imply that British English is the only English language... It would probably work for me, though.doublemax wrote:In that case, maybe we could rename "British English" to just "English"? (I have no idea if that's even possible with reasonable amount of effort.)
