   this has been going for a while...if we should have a small meetup
to thrash out some issues which have come
- changes (new code points) in Unicode for Indic
- different rendering behaviour sought out for some new characters or fonts.
- Updating fonts to confirm to new unicode (ofcourse need to keep
backward compatibility - with apps that may not use new standard.. so
old version of fonts used)
- updating keymaps, input etc. to accomodate new characters..
- fix for once for all the sorting issue which has been long pending
.. take this on per language basis with 1-2 person looking into each
language and come up with the proper & acceptable sort order &
implement the same in glibc locale (& CLDR data).
- also to go further on the areas identified in Indic BoF at FOSS.IN (
http://www.indlinux.org/wiki/index.php/IndicBoF_FOSS.IN )

maybe during some upcoming events (gnunify 8-9 Feb, freed.in 22-24
Feb) such gathering could happen working on specific tasks identified
from areas above.. or if it so deems fit have a separate gathering
with only the interested people joining.

comments, suggestions?
