Yes. I'm still interested in working on this and it's clear from the
threads that other people are too. In the past though, our major
problem has been lack of information from users on the chose of input
methods and frame works, good bug reports, and default configuration

In fragments, this information seems to be collected by a number of
people in outside repositories but, as you've pointed out elsewhere,
the work seems to be usually focused around support for a single input
method or language.

I tend to agree.

Coordination, on this list or on IRC, would be helpful. I've been
doing SCIM work and have your own SCIM packages, it might be good to
let yourself known here or to me off-list.
