Status:
* The language support on the alternate CD regarding language packs is similar to the LiveCD, with one less language (Bengali) installed by default. The following list shows the Karmic languages in detail (the final list for Lucid will not be available until around beta time)
** Alternate CD languages: German (de), English (en), Spanish (es), French (fr), Portuguese (pt), Xhosa (xh);
** LiveCD languages: Bengali (bn), German (de), English (en), Spanish (es), French (fr), Portuguese (pt), Xhosa (xh)
* Added community feedback to test cases
* Updated the last pending actions after a conversation with Arne:
** On the LiveCD, the language packs should be complete, as they are the same ones as in the seeds. Only the language-support packages with writing aids, spell-checking, etc. are not.
** It seems that the DVD contains all language packs and language-support packages. Arne started looking into it, but this action item is not a blocker for the test cases.
