In Japan, we(Ubuntu Japanese LoCo) released "Japanese Remix" for
a nearly ten years, and previous(13.04-?) releases have UEFI support
(only UEFI booting, without secure-boot). That created by Jun Kobayashi
(jkbys, CC-ed)'s hand, some process depends his special technichs:)

- Japanese Remix is widely tested, some Japanese Linux magazines
included as a companion CD/DVD.
- Remix are created by hand-works. not batch process.
- Again, that depends hand works, not automated process.

We can provide solution about how to create UEFI-ready local remix
(non secure-boot support, only UEFI bootable), if you have interest,
me and jkbys wrote english version how to.

Important NOTE: The UOS Meeting time is very hard to presence from
Japan. JST is GMT+9, 16:00..16:55 are staying up too late(or too
early morning)..., I beg your pardon for absense.

NOTE2: By histrorical reasons, Japanese Remix has some non-l10n
# modifications(from PPA), not only language settings.

NOTE3: Currently, doc of "how to build UEFI readly builds" exist
on a jkbys's godly grey cells:)
