Maybe taht's because KDE packagers in Arch save KDE specific locales in /usr/share/locale/{l10n,currency},
while other distros use another locations for this files.

It's strange that nobody haven't got any problem so far (given that it has been four years since it first submitted ;-)
Anyway, I can't update anything at this time.

if l10n directory is purged by localepurge, then KDE users can not set timezones, calendar and language preferences in KDE.

I'm using K3b (Italian localisation). So, I don't know what is the issue.

By default localepurge deletes all KDE locales and currency info. To avid this add "l10n" and "currency" to /etc/locale.nopurge
Like this:
Should I report this upstream?

hmm, you are right! I use Emacs with pkgbuild-mode -- surely I didn't do all the right steps. Perhaps, there was some old source file in my $ABSROOT that was in conflict with the directory contains my localepurge PKGBUILD. Sorry. Fixed.

I concur with FredBezies and enzolatina! I copied the patch straight away and used two different md5sum programs and both came out as "5b926906daddf0269ba70d8d1451876c" just to be sure.

Here is what makepkg -g gave me :

same here, localepurge.8.patch failed...
this is the right md5sum: 5b926906daddf0269ba70d8d1451876c

@harryNID: it's odd, because I've just done a diff and the md5sums seems OK.
The md5sums are:
md5sums=('6a1e13f32cd5f7ca842db9acdf1b9cb4' '57a5be0f64e6873807d3664b468cb001'\
'9de6d8f46e4d2d1be46d3781ab8764f5' '24340f0218d225d2510eee94a77ad676'\
