Re: apt-listbugs orphaned

One should write everything that goes into a bug log in English; but worry not, the language barrier is not as bad as people paint it:

Hey! This is a great idea. If you write in an inlegible (for most of us) script, just write every single important word in English; the flavor text can stay in any language of your choice.

ruby できるかた,どなたか拾いませんか?

Aaw!  Now the language barrier hit me hard.


The referenced pdf is less legible, but you can grok its general meaning nevertheless.

Too bad, while Junichi's idea works just great for natural languages, the presence of ruby creates a hard to pass barrier. In perl, you can "use utf8;" and then use chinese/etc swearwords as identifiers, but this is nothing but embedding natural language words in a computer language.

So: Japanese is still fine, ruby must die a painful death.
