Hi, I want to fix installer bug that reported in

The change made on this `localechooser-post-base-installer.patch` file.
This is only one line addition to add default language for IRAN.

I am no expert on that matter, but it seems to me that the modification on the patch file is wrong.

If my interpretation of the file is correct, then there is a + sign missing at the beginning of the line that you added, similar to those before and after.

I doubt that you can upload your change to the repository, because that needs certain rights.
If you look at you most probably will see "You cannot push directly to this repository. Members of Ubuntu Server Dev import team can push to this repository."

The way that you have formatted the change seems wrong to me.
It is needed that the line for IR looks exactly the same as the other ones (including tabs and space characters and the plus sign).

Can you help with this problem?
