Subject: devuan-installer: [I18N] Language selection dialog missing glyphs
Date: Sun, 22 Mar 2020 20:04:49 +0900
Package: devuan-installer
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Using Devuan GNU/Linux 3.0 (beowulf) amd64 - server 20200313, I noticed
that the "Select a language" dialog is missing glyphs for the translated
names of several of the available languages.

For

 - Chinese (Simplified)
 - Chinese (Traditional)
 - Georgian
 - Japanese
 - Korean
 - Lao

no glyphs are displayed at all.

For (at least)

 - Kazakh
 - Tajik
 - Uyghur

some of the glyphs appear to be missing.

I have no idea how badly affected other languages and dialogs are.

I suspect this issue may have been caused by missing font packages on
the system that builds the installer and/or ISO images.

I normally use "C - No localization" for my installs so this is not a
problem for me.  My Japanese colleagues may be less pleased though ;-)
