pitti, 2009-06-01: Arne, were there any action points for Ubuntu, in particular for Karmic?

arnegoetje, 2009-06-13: Because of recent developments, we will switch from scim to ibus for Karmic.

arnegoetje, 2009-06-18: pitti, can you please review and tell me if something is missing? Thanks.

pitti, 2009-06-18:
 - can you please add a quick feature completeness overview? Is there anything important that i-bus is currently missing over scim?
 - We should not display an update notification if ibus is the only installed IM, since there is no choice. Then the im-switch xsession.d/ script should "just do it".

arnegoetje, 2009-06-18: done.

pitti, 2009-06-18: made some clarifications to wiki, approved

Rolf, 2009-07-30: Why do you say that scim is not maintained after all? Look at SVN and you'll see it's quite active
