Description Chester Cheng 2013-07-08 02:05:41 EDT
Description of problem:
In the keyboard layout, 3 options are listed:
* Taiwan, Province of China (Saisiyat (Taiwan))
* Taiwan, Province of China (Taiwanese (indigenous))
* Taiwan, Province of China (Taiwanese)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run anaconda, try to add keyboard layouts.
2. Filter with keyword "Taiwan".
3. Compare with keyword "China".

Actual results:
* Taiwan, Province of China (Saisiyat (Taiwan))
* Taiwan, Province of China (Taiwanese (indigenous))
* Taiwan, Province of China (Taiwanese)

Expected results:
* Saisiyat (Saisiyat (Taiwan))
* Indigenous Taiwanese (Indigenous Taiwanese (Taiwan))
* Taiwanese (Taiwanese (Taiwan)) and
* Chinese (Traditional Chinese (Taiwan))

Additional info:
1. The keyboard layouts are "LANGUAGE (LANGUAGE (REGION))".  The actual result is "REGION (DIALECT)".
2. It's not wise to raise a political dispute about "whether Taiwan is part of China or not" here: most probably we'll anger Chinese or Taiwanese or (most probably) both.  In anaconda try to filter with keyword "Taiwan" and we'll get 3 "Taiwan, Province of China" entries, while with "China" we'll also get these 3 results but China and/or Chinese does not exist from this search.  The results don't make sense at all.  Keeping the "LANGUAGE (LANGUAGE (REGION))" pattern will simply do.

The "i18n" keyword would probably be appropriate for this bug.

I think the names of keyboard layouts are coming now from xkeyboard-config.
Perhaps you could test again with F20 Beta when I appears soon.

Good point - Steve, if you are able to then please also feel free to add it. :)

We are, in fact, getting names from a different package now.  In addition, we are trying to be a little smarter about displaying less redundant information on the hub for what layouts are selected.  If this is still a problem, please feel free to open a new bug against the langtable-data package.
