           Summary: [Chameleon - doc builder] Copy default language option
                    for new language
           Product: Chameleon
           Version: 1.99
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: AutoDoc
        AssignedTo: chameleon-dev at lists.maptools.org
        ReportedBy: cthorne at dmsolutions.ca

This would be a very useful option. when creating a new language. instead of
starting with the default xml template. I would argue that new languages should
start with a default xml language file. Chances are there will be more
information in the other language file eg. en-CA where most of our content
writing will occur.

I realize this would be no different that copying the english file and renameing
it to the language code you wish, but it would be better in the following ways:

* user would not have to do this, cause for error with rename it wrong.
* user can define the default language template file to start with. If the
language file does not exist than the doc_builder will us the blank default xml
* this will encourage translation of documents. 

This new feature can be a turned on or off. meaning if ON the process will
consider seeing if the language default template exists. if OFF the process will
us the xml default template.
