For IM:

Our home page should be redirected to Wiki:

All project links are at:

Our shared source (mostly debian/* files only using dpatch) are on SVN:

There are many request-to-sponsor on ML which I could not keep up.

Ikuya has few SCIM related packages at around

# SCIM anthy qt-imm, ...
deb http://everybody.good-day.net/~ikuya/debian/sarge/scim-misc/ ./
deb-src http://everybody.good-day.net/~ikuya/debian/sarge/scim-misc/ ./
deb http://everybody.good-day.net/~ikuya/debian/sarge/kasumi/ ./
deb-src http://everybody.good-day.net/~ikuya/debian/sarge/kasumi/ ./

# fonts
deb ftp://debian.linux.org.tw/pub/apt/ unstable main
