#2063 F31 Change: Ibus-typing-booster default for Indian languages
Opened 2 months ago by bcotton. Modified 16 days ago

Make ibus-typing-booster the default input method for Indian languages.

In the Change proposal: please change "he" to "they" (or equivalent), see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they.


-1 until the discussion on devel is sorted.

It's been ~10 days since the last post on the devel thread. Can we move forward with a vote on this proposal now?

@otaylor do you consider the answers on devel satisfying?

/me doesn't know much about Ibus, but it seemed like there were unanswered concerns.

Yeah I also would like to hear from @otaylor.

/me begins the "@otaylor, @otaylor, @otaylor, @otaylor…" chant.

My take on it is that the user interface experience isn't sufficiently integrated to make this a good move for Fedora 30... out-of-the-box we need to have default input method for all users that you don't need to learn about or configure - that just works and seems like part of the operating system.

I think it would be great to encourage users who regularly input in indic languages to try this out in F29 and F30 - get some feedback about how it works for them, what they have problems with, figure out which of the many configure options are actually important, and which don't need to be easily accessed. Then hopefully we can refine the user interface and look at this for Fedora 31.
