language variables are missing from the “American English” language pack

For American English Language Pack, I see the following under CUSTOMISE> LANGUAGE MANAGEMENT> Language packs>
us english language err.png
Could you please advise why this happens?

Background: On my board, http://www.ibm-mainframes.com/, prior to updating 3.1.x I was using two language packs - British English and U.S. English; U.S. English being the default. After updating the board from 3.0.12 to 3.1.5 I kept only British English as the language pack. Updated the board to 3.1.6 and later installed the "American English" language pack after downloading it from here: https://www.phpbb.com/languages/

As my board was previously using the U.S. English pack for 3.0.12 - it showed up under Lnaguage packs under ACP so I've deleted that and installed the new American English pack but the above message show up.

I'm not sure what can be wrong but looks like something is wrong, guide please.

best thing is to delete the us english pack and start over.

you really don't need both anyway. the only difference between the british and english ones are things like colour instead of color and a few other spellings like that.

to me, it really isn't worth having to maintain two different lanuage packs for just that.

Thanks Robert. (How have you been - please check your PM, I remember to send one a while back.)

To have only one language pack make sense but I wish we just had "English Language Pack" rather than British or American... I've a user base from US and UK both and when they have a choice they want to choose the obvious language.

Recently I thought to keep only one language pack but I kept two language packs since start and the users who are using US English packs prior to my board's upgrade to 3.1.6 - they are facing problem in sending email, PMs similar to what I've mentioned in this topic: viewtopic.php?f=466&t=2333501

I'm just done with that but it does not solve the problem.

These language variables are from 3.1.6, the latest language pack version is compatible with phpBB 3.1.5, so that will be fixed in the next version of the language pack once validated. :)
