This might not be a bug but my own stupidity, but it seems strange and I need to report.
I would like to add a language during installation. These are the instructions:
"If an alternative translation package of your choice is available, download and extract its contents to your Drupal root directory."
1. Putting a po file in the Drupal root directory has no effect
2. Putting the po file in a directory called translations within the profile used during installation seems to be the only way it's picked up during installation
3. At step "Set up translations" there is an error and that's the end of my installation process, I cannot continue (see attached screenshot)
4. Please note: the screenshot was taken in D7 Alpha 6 but is exactly the same in current D7 dev (except it looks different)
I did check some other issues about adding translations during installation here, but they all seem to be different/older/closed. I couldn't find one that matches this situation.
