Feedback from users interested in this functionality would be much appreciated! Note that some (many?) applications may attempt to use their own included gettext rather than the one in libc, so before testing it would be helpful to check this and make sure the functions in musl are actually getting called. I'm not familiar with what types of checks typical autoconf scripts do to choose whether to use libc gettext or their own, so information on this topic would also be helpful, especially if there's anything we could do to get apps to choose the one in musl rather than pulling in their own bloated copy of GNU gettext. As mentioned in the commit message, some functionality is still missing. For the plurals stuff, I can't find the information on how you actually get the plural rules out of the .mo file and apply them. For the LANGUAGE variable, it's just a matter of adding some loop-and-retry logic. Rich
