Fedora 18 i18n Test Day

Today is Fedora 18 Test Day: internationalization (i18n) Test Day (18 Sep 2012). (fedora 18 i18n on 18th)

Major Feature for i18n to test:

Gnome 3.6 (ibus Integration with gnome): https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Gnome_Input_Method_Integration_IBus

Harfbuzz: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Fonts_HarfbuzzNG

– Ibus typing booster: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_ibus-typing-booster

– Font Configuration Tool: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Font_Configuration_Tool


Special ISO for i18n testing is created [Download here].

there are some issue like

– if select language for a user (after create new user while login to other user), no input method is selected by default.

– while integration of ibus with gnome (actually XKB) is fine, but some basic issue about translation of Keyboard layouts (xkb are in English, other (ibus) are translated), make little confusion


Harfbuzz Testing can be done on UTRRS Test Page: http://utrrs-testing.rhcloud.com/
