Automatically convert default-content locales

Reported by: mark Owned by: srl
Component: survey Data Locale:
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


People don't realize that a locale is a default content locale. For example, if a vetter is allowed access to pt-BR instead of pt, then things go a bit haywire.

Probably the cleanest thing to do is to disallow setting default content locales when assigning locales to a vetter. Put up a message if it is attempted, saying:

You cannot set the default content locale XX-YY. Instead, use ZZ.

(where ZZ is the parent of XX-YY, recursively until we get to a non-default-content locale.)

Also, give a better message in the "Locale choice" bar (see attached screenshot) to tell the user *why* they can't edit a locale.
