When you wrote about mock configuration previously, I answered:

This was me taking the issue seriously. I haven't started working on
this yet because it got bumped to F30, but I keep a list of all the
points raised, including this one.

NB, some apps will explicitly force locale to en_US.UTF-8 in order to
ensure their output artifacts are stable & repeatable, and/or to work
around bugs in tools they run.
If they do it even though a different locale is configured, they are buggy.
Worst case, if some packages are built using tools which simply
require en_US.UTF-8, a BR: glibc-langpack-en can be added to them.
I don't expected that this would be necessary in more than a handful of cases.
