I am not sure I understand what exactly are bugs in buster.
I don't have pointers to Debian bug reports. But I didn't search for
such bugs. I won't be surprised if there are. [...]

[...] The way I understand
it, the buster version have noticeble issues with i18n. One can
argue how useful it is with today standards. It is hard to fix
bugs in this situation. I do hope that warrants a backport.

If the package in buster is no longer useful, let's fix such issues to restore its usefulness. That's all I tried to say. Requesting pointers to Debian bugs is just the first step down that path.

As an aside, a backport was accepted at the beginning of November.

Which is great, so thanks for starting the thread to make it happen. Still, pure 'buster'-users won't see a fix, so it could be worth trying to fix the issues in buster too. Even though I admit in this case it might not be worth the effort...

Anyhow, thanks for reaching out to make Debian better.
