National-specific models: so longFebruary 26, 2009 11:43 pm family, xkeyboard-config
Today I committed into xkeyboard-config one important change: removal of national specific models: jp106, kr106, abnt2. These models consisted of 2 parts: keycodes and geometries.
Keycodes, as I found, could be safely merged into the default xfree86 and evdev keycode sets. So I just did that.
About geometries… Since they are just “visibility”, functionally useless – there is no point to keep models just for geometries sake.
So, these models are gone (of course, layouts should be working as they always did!). The geometry definitions I will keep for some while, just in case – but I guess I’ll remove them soon too.
If any Brazilian/Japanese/Korean user feels offended – please raise your voice, explain your concerns. I appreciate any reasonable feedback.
PS On a side note, me and my better half got approval for Irish citizenship. After 8.5 years in the country, I am going to get the second passport and be able to travel the world easily!
