Thanks for your attention to CJK input methods.
FWIK yangtsesu is currently a fcitx user and packager of openSUSE .
His packages are okay and updated regularly, but I'm afraid he doesn't
have enough time to maintain all ibus stuff too.
Besides, I would like to maintain fcitx stuff as I am an active user
and current maintainer of some other fcitx-related popular packages in
AUR , and a Chinese native speaker too.
I posted an e-mail  to look for sponsor August this year, and
jsteel contacted me and told me lots of useful stuff. I realized I'm
not ready at that time as I had still several obvious problems in my
AUR packages. But I would like to apply again now if applicable.
You may refer to the fcitx packaging status page , as mentioned in
my previous mail  I am currently maintaining some popular fcitx
packages in the [archlinuxcn] community repo to help CJK users, but it
would be obviously much better if they could be in [community] :)
Sorry, as I am a fcitx user and wishing to maintain fcitx packages, I
can't help with the ibus stuff.
Just a FYI: gnome-settings-daemon will depends on ibus and start
ibus-daemon automatically in the coming 3.6 series, but a user will
still have an option to choose fcitx by setting related env params
such as GTK_IM_MODULE to fcitx. There should be a clean way to do this
though I didn't find one yet :(
