I may not have a voice on that, nevertheless I have two gripes with woody
* The non-inclusion of mozilla 1.0 :-)
* The non-inclusion of _any_ version of mICQ. The current version of mICQ
is pretty much rock solid, all functions of earlier versions and more
are available, and it's the only i18n'ed text mode client. You may
remember the way mICQ was silently removed(!) from the archive.
(Unfortunately, there's a bug in that the initial created .micq/micqrc
causes mICQ to segfault. The simple fix is in CVS or on the mailing list,
but the maintainer seems not to bother to read that. See www.micq.org.)
* The fact that non-English users are giving a hard time by not having
the €uro working out of the box in KDE. Everything else works out of
the box, but KDE requires the addition of .ISO8859-1 to $LANG to work
correctly. That was added to some version of the locales package, but
the maintainer cowardly removed the supplied patch in the current
version (without re-opening the bug!). See #130259 for details
(this bug is references in the €uro-howto as well).
And yes, it's a real shame if it doesn't work out of the box just
half a year late.
PS. There are three kinds of people: those that can count till three and
those that can't. ;-)
