Valencian Catalan Language Pack for Firefox

That's usefull, cientifical and cultural fitting language packet Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm Valencian Language user. The several language packets of "valencian" I have found somewhere where the ones of the AVL (a political language comission created by the valencian right party (PP) for managing a Valencian closer to Catalan)
This package fits perfectly with what is spoken in Valencian, by the street or by administration and cultural-use porpouse.

It fits to me. I vote for the freedom of election. To post against a language package declares clearly there is people interested on avoiding others people use of a particular way of language. Isnt it evil?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.0.2). 

Valencian Language Pack for Firefox

¡Thats perfectly woderfull! Rated 5 out of 5 stars


Analysis

The current version of catalan-valencian does not fulfill my needs as a user, due to really difficult terms I never heard about (Im valencian native).
The "El Puig" code, are official ortographical norms, have an institution whichs rules it and are used by considerable part of the population (me included).
There is not an official recommendation. For instance, Valencian Governement is granting the named institution Real Academia de Cultura Valenciana with huge amounts of money in order to keep working on the field of ruling the language.
There is different institutions interests on deleting the valencian language in order to gain influence power. That goes against the superior interest of the user, who should be free to choose which code wants. Otherwise, we are on danger to help one of the interested parts.
ISO 639-1 code for Valencian is "ca" since Valencian Administration has not ask yet for own code.

Recomendations

To keep locale code: This could be changed to ca-ES-puig or ca-ES-racv, where "puig" is the name of the norms used and "racv" is the name of the association which is promoting it.
Title and description should help users to freely decide whether this language pack fulfills their needs and it is really what they wanted to download.

Happy user!
