Package: lightdm
Version: 1.18.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

tl;dr: The locales menu does not offer the "C" and "C.UTF-8" locales.

   * What led up to the situation?

I have the following locales installed:

    % locale -a

The system default is:

    % cat /etc/default/locale

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
   * What was the outcome of this action?

The locale menu on the top right corner of the login screen offers one
choice: de_DE.utf8.  (The menu option is called "German - Germany".)

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I expected the locales "C" and "C.UTF-8" to be offered in the drop-down
menu as well.
