I've recently joined a mailing list with lots of people from South
Asia on it. What is the general direction of Emacs support for these
South Asian languages when it comes to fonts and and input methods?
The most useful thing you can do on this list is not specifically
about Emacs. Rather, it is to steer the list towards solutions that
respect users' freedom, rather than solutions that don't. For
instance, raising issues of freedom when others discuss an issue
without regard to freedom as a goal.
Related to that, you can encourage use of the
term "free software" rather than "open source".
Encouraging work that works with Emacs is also useful, of course;
Handa can probably tell you what would be useful. But the other two
are more important, I think.
