This relies on ibus-m17n which has already been rejected for being massively out of date.

It requires m17n-lib and m17n-db but not ibus-m17n.

By the way, what is so outdated about ibus-m17n?

Apologies, I was looking at the original phuang repo and not the new upstream ibus project. The last release for phuang was in 2010 and that coupled with their lack of inactivity would typically make it ineligible. Since there is a more recent update (2014) on the new upstream, I will take a closer look this morning.

Thank you for reaching out to me and letting us know that this wasn't a dependence on ibus-m17n. m17n was last released in 2014, so I'll take a closer look at that as well.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
