Comment (by mcs):

 Replying to [comment:13 gk]:
 > One interesting part is the locale situation as the hardened series
 allows the user to choose from much more locales for their Tor Browser. I
 think we don't have good means ready to give the users the bundle that
 matches the chosen locale. Taking that into account (and the fact that we
 are in alpha territory anyway) switching to an en-US Tor Browser seems not
 too bad. And I guess that should not break the Tor Browser either as the
 old language packs will just stop working and the en-US one will take
 over. Again, I could be wrong here but mcs/brade would know more in that
 case I think and could correct me.

 Yes, I think that is what will happen. I guess the user might get a mix of
 languages because the bundled extensions (e.g., Torbutton, Tor Launcher)
 include all languages. Not the end of the world though.
