Angry [rant]Who decided to change my country's decimal sign?!

This is the first time I have noticed EVER since I used GNOME that I get the decimal separator WRONG for my country and region!!

I'm not in SPAIN, but rather MEXICO, we use a decimal '.' and not a ',' (I hate the ',' as the decimal separator), we use ',' as the unit separator instead (like pretty much every one else)!

I know this is a "bug" and I should report it, until suddenly BZ didn't like my password anymore, and I won't get the token to change it in my inbox!

That's wrong. Actually more countries use comma as decimal mark than a point

a list of countries which use comma (from wikipedia):
Quote:
Albania, Andorra, Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Canada (French-speaking), Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia (comma used officially, but both forms are in use elsewhere), Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Estonia, Faroes, Finland, France, Germany, Georgia, Greece, Greenland, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kirgistan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg (uses both marks officially), Macau (in Portuguese text), Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Morocco, Netherlands, Norway, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa (officially[15]), Spain, Sweden, Switzerland (when the amount is not in Swiss francs[16]), Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam.

That may be, but more people use the decimal point.

Have you tried looking at https://live.gnome.org/TranslationProject there might be somewhere you can replort the issue.
