Hi!

I googled
"pale" "moon" "icu" "python"
but I cannot find how to fixit.

Would you mind telling me how to build the environment for rebuilding the data files?
Now I use Windows8.1 64bit, and I know how to install python(I don't know what version is neccesary for this)

Thanks.

The fix will be in Pale Moon 28.6.0 which should release sometime in July.

Getting this done was actually quite the rabbit hole.
It requires a regexp-enabled version of grep (which the MozillaBuild tools don't have) and it requires the ICU suite to be built to have access to icupkg (and in "good" GNU fashion, of course windows binaries are not available online). After that's satisfied, it is done by using the various scripts in the source tree to rebuild the data files from the .txt definitions.

Hi!

Of cource, installing a linux distro might be a choice,
but it's better for me to wait until July.

I appreciate your kindness!

Yes, it would solve the grep issue (which was worked around with gitbash anyway). It would -still- require the ICU suite to be built from source though (and in the case of linux probably installed as well, which I probably wouldn't want) so the rabbithole is about the same, regardless. And I'd rather not have to install linux just to run some update scripts for data files, anyway.
