I don't.  The only provenience in the xkeyboard-config file is:

,----[ from /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/ara ]
| based on a keyboard map from an 'xkb/symbols/ar' file

Looking at the history in the old CVS files, the Arabeyes team were
the last to make changes to xkb/symbols/ar:

,----[ from cvs log of 
/srv/anoncvs.freedesktop.org/cvs/xapps/xkbcomp-old/symbols/ar,v ]
| 683. Update the Arabic (ar) XKB keyboard map (#5145, Arabeyes team).

so at least it was last worked on by Arabic experts.

I just switched to the arabic layout and typed left to right, top to
bottom.  And did the map the same way (switch to arabic, hit Q on the
"Q" line, etc).
