Well, 226200 is marked as pending.
base-config changelog mentions:
* Kenshi Muto
- Run jfbterm when language is Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Greek.
And when jfbterm failed, termwrap fallbacks to C. (closes: Bug#226200)
- Add WRAPPER_OPTION (Bug#225865)
- Update Japanese translation (ja.po)
So, what more could be done ?
Unfortunately, Mr Muto's patch was commited just after beta2 freeze
Joey Hess decided to avoid breaking base-config while the whole stuff
was stable enough for beta. This lead to mojibake remaining in beta2 ?
sorry for this.
But, please don't tell d-i hackers do not care about all this.
I will think about building a special ebta2 i386 businesscard image with a
more recent base-config, but dunno if I'll have time for this.
