Description Lauri Nurmi 2009-05-04 16:58:09 EDT
Description of problem:
According to Chris Lumens,
"they" (i.e. Fedora developers or Red Hat probably) do not have any non-US keyboards.

This has caused trouble many times, as keyboard layout related bugs or other annoyances go undetected until preview releases, or even actual releases.

Considering that non-US keyboards do not cost much more than $10 each, and there are probably some non-unitedstatesians developing Fedora, would it be wrong to use various keyboard layouts during development phase, and not completely outsource that sort of testing to end users?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Reassigning to anaconda team based on description.
Probably the comment was referring more to US engineers, I imagine

I guess some of us have non-US kbds in Geo's outside US at least

Will hit manager up for money, but this is definitely NOTABUG.
