I was a speaker talking about Chinese localization and input method
support, but I failed to get the oppurtunity to talk directly to him
just because he (if not they, I only know Alan) was just two busy at
the venue. Actually we had a lot of talks about input method during
GNOME Asia, but it seems have no effect on this very item either,

I'm aware that this CoC will be raised before I start posting. AFAIK, please:
 * be respectful and considerate: when users disagree, please don't be ignorant.
 * be patient and generous: don't try to push something hard when
design said yes but users said no.
 * assume people mean well: don't use CoC to "threat" people when you
see someone is intensely disagreeing.
 * try to be concise: yes, you are concise and this phrase has nothing
to do here.
