The situation is similar:

Yes, it would be a nice addition to GNU ELPA.

There's a fair bit of that discussion written in a language I sadly
can't read.  What's still missing?

This is quite outside of my area of expertise, so I don't really
understand what this is about, but if the issue is to find a pinyin
table, then Emacs already comes with one, so we could both
arrange for Emacs to make it available in a more convenient form
(currently it's only available in the form of an input method, which may
be somewhat inconvenient to work with), and we could create a GNU ELPA
package containing it (or just add it to pyim) for use with older Emacsen.

yes. 

then Emacs already comes with one, so we could both

yes, the problem is that the pinyin.map in emacs do not include many Chinese Char.
it is a *small* table :-)

pyim use it before.

Even better.

Then we should improve it within Emacs, not just within pyim.

Presumably there's an appropriately licensed pinyin map somewhere that's
more complete, like maybe one used by some part of Gnome, or something?

I went a little ways towards this in #34862, but it fizzled out:

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=34862

I'd be happy to help pitch in here.

the real quesiton for me,  is that  is it acceptable for GNU elpa  by import and convert  libpinyin's table to  pyim.
If acceptable, no other things need to do,  If not acceptable, I have replace the current pymap.el to other.

Chinese Char and Pinyin is the core basic of Chinese Language, really have  **Copyright issues**?  I doubt it.

Libpinyin seems to be GPLv3; if that is correct, then there is no issue at all and your use is completely acceptable.

sorry, I remeber wrong:

pyim-pymap.el is converted from pinyin_simp.dict.yaml of
[[https://github.com/rime/rime-pinyin-simp][rime-pinyin-simp]]

rime-pinyin-simp use LGPL-3.0 License, while pinyin_simp.dict.yaml

I'd rather prefer to have input methods bundled with Emacs, not on
ELPA.  Two reasons:

  . input methods are basic keyboard input, users should have them OOTB
  . adding an input method currently requires adding it to
    leim-list.el and re-dumping Emacs, so AFAIU at least some
    infrastructure is currently missing for installing input methods
    outside of the build

(Of course, if we are unfortunate enough to bump into legal matters
which cannot be resolved, then this is a moot point.)

Hi, tumashu.

I'm a big fan of pyim input method, I would be very happy to see pyim
can be a part of GNU ELPA or even Emacs!

I just do some research on the issue we faced. We can extract the
bopomofo data from unihan database.

For example, the pinyin of CJK character "爱"(means love) is "ai". Can be found at
https://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=7231.

The full database can be downloaded at
https://www.unicode.org/Public/UCD/latest/ucd/Unihan.zip. Unihan
database is licensed under Unicode license, a free license approved by
FSF(https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#Unicode).

We can write a simple program to extract the pinyin of needed characters
in Unihan_Readings.txt. Unihan database contains almost all reading of
CJK character, we have to limit it to a subset. Maybe refer to
《通用汉字规范表》 (Table of General Standard Chinese Characters)
http://www.gov.cn/gzdt/att/att/site1/20130819/tygfhzb.pdf.

IMO, the CJK character in BMP is enough for a input method in daily use.
It contains "CJK Unified Ideographs"(U+4E00 - U+9FFF) and its A
extension(U+3400 - U+4DBF). 

It'll be perfect if we also support the B extension (U+20000 - U+2A6D6),
but rarely used (and even many fonts cannot display these characters).

'quail-define-package' and 'quail-define-rules' work perfectly well to
define private input methods, so Iʼm missing something here.

Who or what would put them there?  We are talking about a package
installation, yes?

And what about register-input-method?

pyim does:

;;;###autoload
(register-input-method "pyim" "euc-cn" 'pyim-start (nth 0 pyim-titles))

is that a problem?

I was talking about the installation.  What would that have to do, and
how would it do it?

I don't understand the question: the above line shows that the package
autoloads this `register-input-method` call.  IOW if the user has that
package activated (which is the default for all packages that the user
installed), then the above line will be executed between `early-init.el`
and `init.el`.

Today, I let pyim-pymap.el  use pinyin.map (include in emacs repo), 
If we find other good resource, we will switch to use it :-)

pyim use quail, so it should register it to quail before use.

Is that enough to correctly set up the user's language environment?

Also, leim-list.el is not just for register-input-method calls; even
if pyim doesn't need anything else (does it?), input methods in
general will, so if we want to install input methods from elpa's, we
need to support that somehow.

But in general (see my first point) I think input methods should be in
core, available in "emacs -Q" etc.

I have no idea.  I think I'd have to ask Eli or Handa.
[ Notice how I carefully phrased the above quoted paragraph such that
  it only contains facts I know to be true because of how package.el and
  autoloads work: I know nothing about how input methods are registered
  and how that might interact with the user's language environment
  (and to be honest, I must admit that I don't really know what
  is a language environment either).  ]

I think we should aim to make it possible without too many contortions
to distribute and install input methods as external packages.

I tend to agree, but I don't think it makes it less important to support
external input methods.

Then let's ask them, by all means.

I'm fine with that, but first we need to know what those contortions
are.  So let's ask Eli or Handa about that as well.

I'm fine with having such support, yes.
