             Bug #: 13805
           Summary: ru_RU.UTF-8 currency should use ',' as radix point
           Product: glibc
           Version: 2.13
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: localedata
        AssignedTo: [hidden email]
        ReportedBy: [hidden email]
                CC: [hidden email]
    Classification: Unclassified


The ru_RU.UTF-8 locale data looks like:
 {decimal_point = 0x7ffff70e4490 ",", thousands_sep = 0x7ffff70e4492 " ",
  grouping = 0x7ffff70e4495 "\003\003", int_curr_symbol = 0x7ffff70e4fb0 "RUB
",
  currency_symbol = 0x7ffff70e4fb5 "руб", mon_decimal_point = 0x7ffff70e4fbc
".",
  mon_thousands_sep = 0x7ffff70e4fbe " , ...

There's a difference between decimal_point and mon_decimal_point that doesn't
seem supported in any documentation I've found. ICU uses ',' for both:
http://demo.icu-project.org/icu-bin/locexp?d_=en&_=ru_RU.

ICU also includes a '.' at the end of the local currency_symbol, which is
supported by wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_ruble
