Name for zip file and folder

Post by scootergrisen » Thu May 02, 2019 12:14 pm

https://area51.phpbb.com/docs/dev/3.2.x ... ation.html says:
The submitted <languagename>_<version>.zip must contain a <languagename>_<version> folder. The files from above should be placed in this folder.
But this does not tell how the language name and version should be written exactly.

Could be:
britishenglish
british_english
326
3.2.6
3_2_6

Suggest writing it exactly how it should be written.

I suggest that the phpBB files and the language pack files use the same style for file names and folder names.

phpBB-3.2.6.zip contains phpBB3 folder
So why not have language packs contain phpBB3 folder as well instead of language_3_2_x?

Also phpBB-3.2.6.zip uses "-".
So why not have language packs use language-version instead of language_version?
