fcitx in CentOS-8

While I suspect only a few people will care, the more who post to the bug, the better chance it has of being added. When fcitx was first requested, the packager felt there was no use case for it, as Gnome, the official desktop, prefers ibus. (Which doesn't work well for me with openbox or dwm). It was closed with a Won't fix, but then reopened when a few people gave use cases. There is even a COPR for it, (though that didn't work for me). At any rate, for those who need Asian language input and would prefer using fcitx to ibus, a request has been opened at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1761089
