ru: AM/PM should be untranslated in Russian

Reported by: fredrik Owned by: fredrik
Component: other Data Locale: ru
Phase: Review: pedberg
Weeks: Data Xpath:


We have several reports that the AM/PM indicators should be left in English for Russian. Right now we have a couple of different variants floating around:

<field type="dayperiod">




<dayPeriodContext type="format">

<dayPeriodWidth type="abbreviated">

<dayPeriod type="am" draft="contributed">до полудня</dayPeriod>
<dayPeriod type="pm" draft="contributed">после полудня</dayPeriod>

<dayPeriodWidth type="narrow">

<dayPeriod type="am" draft="contributed">дп</dayPeriod>
<dayPeriod type="pm" draft="contributed">пп</dayPeriod>

<dayPeriodWidth type="wide">

<dayPeriod type="am">до полудня</dayPeriod>
<dayPeriod type="pm">после полудня</dayPeriod>




Russia typically uses the 24-hour clock, but when they do have 12-hour format, they use AM/PM in latin script. Also the current spelt out version cause clippings in UI.

Suggest we revert all of these to AM/PM.

For the format-style dayPeriods, narrow falls back to abbreviated, which falls back to wide. If they are all the same, from a data standpoint we can just provide the wide version. However, providing all of them does emphasize that AM/PM is desired for all widths, so it is probably best to keep the data for all widths in CLDR. We should eliminate the redundant data when converting for ICU (there is a separate bug for that).
