Is it possible, by any method, to change the list of available locales? The current list includes some strange entries, e.g. East Germany, and we would like to update this to be more current for our client.
You can download the locales you want from https://github.com/yiisoft/yii/tree/master/framework/i18n/data and place in your

You may also wish to add it to the
'languages' array within each of your selected locales’ data files, so you can customize what the locale should be labeled as within the CP.
