I'd like to request (yet another) freeze break for mutter, namely the patch
It turns out that when moving cogl/clutter forks into the mutter codebase
this cycle, we accidentally broke the text direction handling - that is,
elements will always be laid out from left to right, even when using a
script like Arabic or Hebrew where the opposite direction is expected.
That's because the default text direction is based on the translation of a
"magic" string, and translations were dropped for the internal forks -
luckily, GTK+ uses the same mechanism (and indeed, the same "magic"
string), so we can just re-use GTK+'s translations to fix the text
direction again, which is what the proposed patch does.
Release-team lurker? Do NOT participate in discussions.
