[izpack-users] Portuguese langpack?

What you're overseeing here is that the languagepacks are coded 
according to the ISO3 code for languages (639-2, see e.g. 
http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/englangn.html for an overview), 
not the ISO3 code for countries.
As far as I can tell there are no seperate languages defined for the 
'portugese portugese' and the 'brazilian portugese', so this is actually 
an issue with the current langpack naming convention.
(I realize that the Dutch langpack should be renamed to conform to this 
convention (should be dut.xml instead of ned.xml (which isn't even an 
ISO3 Country Code)))
