Hello all,

Slowly coming back to activity in Fedora.
I think this bug should be a blocker.  The world is full of non-English speakers.  And even the English speakers may use two or more layouts  (as I do myself).  If you add a layout but your keyboard seems to remain the same, it's quite confusing and annoying to any user, but particularly to a beginner.  Personally I couldn't vote because I completely missed the meeting, but I would vote for making this one a blocker any time I'd had a chance.
My 2 cents.

Kind regards,
Silvia

Carlos - can you take a look at this before the workstation WG meeting at 13:00 UTC on Monday? It's not clear to me either the exact impact or whether it's likely to be a simple fix.

Hm, it's not that switching the layouts is broken. Switching works.
It's that the layout you switch *to* is broken. It's maybe more obvious
for me because my primary layout is not qwerty. When I switch to Czech,
it becomes qwerty (wrong, should be qwertz) when it was not previously
qwerty. So it's really messed up. :)

Michael re-proposed this for blocker discussion. I already said so in the bug report, but I'll repeat it here:

Workstation WG members, please tell us what you think. We were not united in our opinion on blocker-ness of this issue, and we'd really appreciate hearing from multiple desktop people what they think about this. Either on Monday's blocker meeting, or in the bug, or here on the list.

Thank you.
