Thanks Barry for your confirmation.

I am still curious how to make Zimbra core team pay more attention on
putting Vietnamese as a pre-installed language into the main product.
As I mentioned in previous message, there are a lot of Vietnamese
currently using Zimbra right now and we always have to do install
Vietnamese lang files (from GitHub) once installing Zimbra.
