== BUG ==

Installation of ibus does not install any ibus-foo as default.

The dependency chain is 
 * ibus-xkbc depends on ibus
 * ibus does not depends/recommends any ibus-foo (like ibus-xkbc).

So people installing ibus are left without hint for how to enable


Since cyclic dependency is deprecated, we can not add
depends/recommends on ibus-foo pointing to ibus.


I can think of followings:

 * add suggests to ibus-foo packages.
 * add GUI UI preference panel "Help" with
   /usr/share/doc/ibus/README.Debian" contents.

Since these are feature request, severity wishlist is appropriate.

== NOTE ==

There is new https://github.com/sun-im/ibus-xkbc for ibus 1.5
