Use case for 'or' list

Reported by: mark Owned by: mark
Component: main Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


We've held off having formatting for an 'or' list until we had a client use-case, but now it appears we have one, such as in composing messages like:

Pain: acute, frequent, severe, or throbbing

I suggest that we add the following to English and root, and populate it in v29 for the CLDR locales.

<listPattern type='or'>

<listPatternPart type="start">{0}, {1}</listPatternPart>
<listPatternPart type="middle">{0}, {1}</listPatternPart>
<listPatternPart type="end">{0}, or {1}</listPatternPart>
<listPatternPart type="2">{0} or {1}</listPatternPart>

We also have a use case for a "time ordered list", eg

wait, watch, then go.

Suggest this as

<listPattern type='then'>

Auto move of all 29 -> upcoming
