New ibus-pinyin cannot be used for quanpin
Reported by user, no idea about this stuff myself.
User reports that the new ibus-pinyin in Tails 2.3 is buggy, cannot be used with quanpin, and is better to have ibus-libpinyin or ibus-sunpinyin.
It would be nice to have input from some chinese speaker about this...

It would be great if there was information more specific and actionable than "is buggy", if it really matters.
cannot be used with quanpin,
According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Chinese_input_methods_for_computers, Quanpin ("full pinyin") is one of the main flavours of the Pinyin input method. I am not sure but it seems to be a synonym or alternate spelling for Quanyin. Also, https://chinese.stackexchange.com/questions/5675/which-imes-input-method-editors-are-actually-most-used-in-each-of-prc-roc-an seems useful.
and is better to have ibus-libpinyin or ibus-sunpinyin.
OK, thanks for the suggestion. Next step would be to check if we have to choose only one among
ibus-sunpinyin, or if we can ship 2 or 3 of them.
emmapeel, can we get in touch with the bug reporter, and get them to test experimental ISO images? If yes, then I'm ready to prepare a few ones. If not, then there's no point in me working on this much more, since I won't be able to evaluate and validate my results.
In case we have to choose:
- a couple upstream releases in the last few years
- in Debian since a long time
- popcon: 510 (inst.), 177 (vote)
- a few upstream releases in 2015
- in Debian since Jessie
- popcon: 101 (inst.), 53 (vote)
- 2.0.3 in Debian since 2011
- no upstream release since then
- popcon: 128 (inst.), 39 (vote)

Yes, we can ask them to test ISO images.
I'm very sorry it took me a year (!) to come back to this topic. If you can easily find their email address, please give it to me. Otherwise, well, too bad, my bad, and I'll see what I can do about it without any testers.
Thanks in advance!
