Hi Tomas, everyone,

I'm the downstream maintainer for m17n-db[1] for Fedora/RHEL and was
particularly interested in porting the Indic (& other) keymaps to
Maemo. Though m17n-db & Maemo (vkb) have altogether different format,
but it would be interesting to be able to convert from m17n-db to vkb,
either via scripts or manually.

For the current vkb's implementation, I'm very much interested to see
how complex characters (indic ligeratures) with multiple key-inputs
forming one ligerature are handled by Maemo.

I'm starting porting some simple keymaps first (manually though) &
would put them up for testing once done.

Example of a very direct one-to-one key-mapping of en_US keyboard with
Assamese (as_IN) -

Lets bring i18n input to Maemo :)
