This particular problem points out a problem that is only going to become more of a problem as the internationalization of software increases. Not everything is ASCII or English, and not defensively programming for such cases is short-sighted. Perhaps we are getting "burned out" by the hectic pace that Fedora tries to keep with a six-month release cycle. I know I sat out a lot of the 18 cycle due to a sense of being overwhelmed by the rush. -- G.Wolfe Woodbury firstname.lastname@example.org -- devel mailing list email@example.com https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel
