Hi Nishit, and great to see someone responding:)

To be frank, I only meant adding just translations. But Currency, 
Calendar and Collator do not seem to be a big deal either.

My personal interest is in getting Russian language officially supported :)

There is a project at GitHub that contains quite a number of various 
string translations to Russian: https://github.com/darkbarker/java-i18n 
. I have forked it recently and plan to get it updated, including 
reference to the applicable license :)

And if there is a possibility to get support of Russian language 
incorporated into OpenJDK / Oracle JDK, I would be glad to follow your 
instructions and do a little bit more to get the job done, 
Currency/Calendar/Collator/etc included...

Does that answer your question?
