Hey all.

I think (IMHO) it would be an good idea to have an switch to suppress error-messages of (outdated-)language-files.
So users how upgrade to an development- or alpha-, beta-version well wanna have fixed an bug can use there old language-files as long as there is an new (updated-) version. It's clear that some funktion will be in mozilla-native (en) language, but the most will anyway be in the user-native language (for me german).
Are there any reasons against it ???

It's not clear to me what this bug is asking for... allowing the use of outdated localizations when a new (unlocalized) release is made? That doesn't sound like a bad idea to me, but I don't know the current state of the infrastructure.

Maybe Axel can shed a little light on whether this is still an issue?

Today, we're using l10n-merge on all our builds, so localizations work, even if they're outdated. Thus, I're resolving this WORKSFORME.

For reference, if we'd interpret this bug to be about making, say, a language pack work with falling back to en-US independent of the version of the langpack and en-US, this would be a WONTFIX.
