Sorry, what I meant is that, ideally, we would be testing Write in
joyride with the 2.6.4 version. As we don't have that version in
joyride yet, I think the closest we can do is testing Abiword 2.6.4.
Regarding language support, I expect it to be the same as Write, but
as always, it's better to test what is going to be delivered.
