Description

Currently, URLs like

https://help.libreoffice.org/7.0/ru-RU/text/swriter/guide/globaldoc.html

redirect to starting English help page, instead of to

https://help.libreoffice.org/7.0/ru/text/swriter/guide/globaldoc.html

because for Russian, "ru-RU" help does not exist, only "ru".

On the other hand, for en, pt, and zh variants, the full BCP-47 tags are needed. This distinction leads to code like https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/cui/source/dialogs/tipofthedaydlg.cxx?r=728548f8#129, where we effectively hardcode in core, which help modules are per-country, and which aren't.

It looks reasonable to allow uniform URLs with full BCP-47 tags, which would fallback as necessary on the website level.

Oliver, what is your opinion?
