The language was added on the translation server. For the language to be included on the main CAcert website at least 10% of the strings should be translated.

For setting french as the fallback language: that is currently not possible because of the way gettext works: developers enter strings in the original language (which is English for CAcert) and mark them as translatable. Then the translatable strings get extracted by a tool, then translated on the translation server, and reimported into the software. Now every time the software sees a translatable string it looks whether it can find a translation for that string in the language currently set. If there is one it is used in place of the original string but if it can't find a translation it just displays the original string. As far as I know it is not possible to select a secondary language.
