After upgrading xkeyboard-config with French keyboard.
dot key is not giving anymore a dot on screen, but a comma instead
I confirm this bug with the IT layout, not only the FR. Please switch back to the previous behavior. This bug completely breaks the keyboard usage.
This is the wrong commit:
I understand the SI discussion, but I don't agree at all.
Italian users are used to have the DOT on that key, so changing it is very annoying.
Please revert the commit: Italian keyboard have a "DOT" not a "COMMA" on the <KPDL> key. The "DOT" is the default char and it's always printed on the key.
Right. The key should return what's imprinted on it. From looking at pictures I believe that this is true also for the Dutch (NL) keyboard.

Back out cf93beb - restore numeric keypad separator for FR/IT/NL
This reverts commit cf93beb47f9907946dd72ca4d481ffbbbadda53a
Let <KPDL> key on it,fr and nl keyboards generate KP_Separator.
Notwithstanding the never ending discussion what character this
key on the numeric keypad should produce this key should produce
what is imprinted on the keyboards. After all all three countries
are observing the SI standards.
This makes this layout more consistent and match for instance
what is done in the de layout.
It turned out that the information about the keypad separator
for the fr, it and nl keyboard layouts were obtained from what
glibc sets as delimiter for the respective language.
This however doesn't coincide what is imprinted on the keyboards
for the respective languages.
I'm sorry that this happened.
Next time I will research myself before I trust what others have found.
Thank you ! Pushed!
