This bug covers displaying RTL locales in the locale picker itself. Making our settings fragments themselves RTL-aware is Bug 928663.

This bug *might* be a no-op, depending on how smart Android's list picker is.

I'll have a go at this as soon as I set-up my development environment.

Aymen: be aware that this is a very ambitious bug, and there is an implicit prerequisite: Fennec's UI doesn't support RTL locales at all right now, and to the best of my knowledge we don't ship any.

You should sync up with :gueroJeff to make sure that RTL/bidi efforts are all working together.

(In reply to Richard Newman [:rnewman] from comment #2)

Well, maybe I ought to first try to fix a less tasking and difficult bug before thinking about this, in order to acquaint myself with the code and development process.
Hi Aymen,

Yes, I'm organizing a group of interested localizers/Android developers to work on RTL in Fennec. Let me add you to my list of interested people and I'll be in touch this week.

Richard, thanks for CC-ing me. There are about three-four people interested in being mentored through these RTL bugs. I'll have an email sent out by the end of the day with everyone (you, Finkle, and localizers) on it.
