Save supplementalMetadata aliases instead of ICU deprecates in locale_dependencies?


Currently, in, the list of aliases is pulled from the input "aliasDeprecates" variable, which is the content of icu-locale-deprecates.xml in ICU. It might be cleaner to instead generate that list directly from supplementalMetadata.xml.

Damn, I tried reopening it, but now I can’t change the fix version

It might be good to reopen this ticket for ICU 68 as a reminder to delete the unused files.

Now the CLDR tools have finally been deleted in CLDR, these are definitely now no longer used/usable, so they can be deleted. I’ll look into that (and any other lingering files).

The icu-locale-deprecates.xml file still exists. Is it still being used, in which case this issue should be reopened, or is it obsolete, in which case the file should be deleted?

Fixed as part of the LDML tool rewrite and "tailoring" support as part of ICU-20693.
