Mingw-get is designed so that others could use it to distribute their binaries. It would be nice if the difference in spellings between en_GB and en_US could be tolerated so that when one uses for example license instead of licence mingw-get would discern them to be the same.

    If you care to propose a patch, I'm certainly willing to consider it; I normally do try to accommodate the alternative spellings, but in this context, I fear that it may be difficult to achieve an adequately robust implementation.

    We did discuss this, around four years ago; we agreed to adopt the standard spelling used in every English speaking nation, outside the sphere of influence of the USA. Right now, I'm stashing this on the "too hard" pile.
