Hi all,
ibus supports more than 20 languages via m17n, to be more precise,
those languages supported in m17n are supported by ibus as well, but
most of ibus users are CJK users, should more than 90%, and percentage
of chinese user should be highest. suppose thats why we have
ibus-pinyin in CD by default.
