Could we create a locale for the Bislama language.
Bislama is a language spoken in Vanuatu, a Pacific island nation located near Australia. I've started a project whose main objective is to integrate Bislama into popular apps, software and games in order to help the small nation enter the digital era and getting a CLDR locale is a very important step.
Bislama also known by its earlier French name, bichelamar, is a creole language, and one of the official languages of Vanuatu. It is the first language of many of the "Urban ni-Vanuatu" (citizens who live in Port Vila and Luganville), and the second language of much of the rest of the country's residents.
