patch to add en_CA and fr_CA LC_TIME files

Canada uses ISO 8601 for dates:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_and_time_notation_in_Canada

http://xkcd.com/1179/

Currently, en_CA is using en_GB's LC_TIME, which doesn't adhere to ISO 8601.  en_US doesn't adhere to ISO 8601 either, so en_CA will have to be a new addition.  fr_FR has this same issue, so fr_CA will have to be added too.

I've attached a patch for /head/share/timedef/.  This patch adds the files en_CA.ISO8859-1.src, fr_CA.ISO8859-1.src, and fr_CA.UTF-8.src, and modifies the Makefile to reflect these changes.

Canada's official time is defined by National Research Council Canada.  They recommend ISO 8601:

en_CA and fr_CA ISO 8601 date format

There is work in this direction with respect to importing CLDR (http://cldr.unicode.org/) locale data. I suspect this patch is out of date. I'm adding one against 12-CURRENT.

I also created review D9925 for this.

Comment 5 A.J. Kehoe IV (Nanoman) 2017-03-19 21:34:09 UTC
Should "head/share/timedef/ca_IT.ISO8859-15.src" be renamed to "head/share/timedef/en_CA.ISO8859-15.src"?
