yum-langpacks updated to 0.4.4 release

Today, yum-langpacks-0.4.4 is released. This is basically a minor update but important for zh_CN locale people. It is observed that “yum langinstall zh_CN” does not pulling man pages package. When I looked into this issue, I found its actually the name of the man-pages package for zh_CN locale. The package is named as man-pages-zh-CN. The langpacks plugin work for standard locale names available in /usr/share/i18n/locales directory. Somehow this package I guess following publican locale name. I really hate to add special parsing cases like fixing this issue in langpacks plugin but if the problematic package owner not interested to fix then I have to fix to make sure langpacks plugin work fine.

Considering past experience with problematic package owners, some prefer to add virtual provides instead to rename the packages. But, we have now naming policy approved for this. Anyone adding translation packages in Fedora please use that policy.
