Thanks for your reply.

Well, I think the main point of arguing about this issue is that most  

is mostly used to other input method and they don't care about iBus...

Still 2 points to be answered especially for Mageia here:

1. In MCC, we can set up the input method in localedrake, and this

setting would be system-wide except GNOME about 3.6+. This should be  

because it would destroy the unified user experience.

2. For users who want other input method, is there a easy way to do it?

I must remind here: I think most developer in GNOME don't really know the

pain for our CJK user here. Whether iBus or other input method all don't  

the completeness that most people need. iBus continuously lost the word  

Hime/GCIN, and others more don't have easy way to add up other input  
module, and

scim/oxim... and more are even out of maintenance.

The main point of issue is that we hope to have the freedom and have the  
input method

that fit each other's need( There's at least 10+ input modules exist), and  
the way

GNOME implement the unified input method had very bad impression for us.

You guys do a good job, but the decision of easily bundle up a single  
input method

is really a bad idea, because not all people want to contribute to iBus  
project, and

they already have effort on other input methods.
