Users become particularly vocal when things do not work as expected: we rant and, in our frustration, we sometimes fail to recognize all the hard work and commitment of those who make things happen.
Only two days ago, I discovered that the release candidate of Mageia 5 was available and tested it. I saw that a key feature for me, Japanese IME via iBus, was not working.
I reported the bug without much hope, to be honest.
Almost immediately, I began receiving emails with updates of the progress that Mageia developers were making. They were busy, buzzing with activity trying to rectify the problem.
Today, I am happy to report that Japanese IME is working again in Mageia 5 RC.
Although I could not manage to make Anthy work, Mozc works perfectly: it lets you type in hiragana and katakana, and gives you suggestions of conversion to kanji, as Anthy did.
Therefore, I want to express my deepest gratitude to those who took their valuable time to tackle this issue. I don't know the names of all of you who got involved, but one thing I know... You all ROCK!
