Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 1.8.2-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I'm sorry because I'm going to complain, but I don't understand why in the top
corner on the right side of the "login greeter" I read en-US.utf8 instead of
English. And if I use an other language I will read, for example, it-IT.utf8.

It's strange, I'm not speaking or writing in en-US.utf8 and neither in it-
IT.utf8. I speak and write in English and maybe in Italian, French or Spanish.

It's a stupid thing but not so stupid if you don't know what it means. Not all
the people which use Debian are coders or IT technicians. I think that is a
little thing but with a big collateral effect those to ward off the people from
informatics because it creates a sense of inadequacy.

Best regards,
