the phonetic layout for tamil, as designed by our tamil translator
Comment 3 Leon Ho 2004-11-07 22:08:38 EST
Look like it is quite big compared to other phonetic layout. 
Jaya, Jatin, can you give some feedback on:

- the speed on this new layout
- severity of this layout for RHEL4
- is it a addon from the current phonetic layout (i.e. can old user which
familiar with old phonetic still can use their old keys?)
- what are the impacts if we do not include this for RHEL4?
Comment 4 Jayaradha 2004-11-08 00:09:27 EST
1. Need to test the speed of new layout. 
2. At present RHEL4 supports tamil Phonetic and inscript layout.
Existing phonetic layout is used by very less number of people and
inscript layout is not in use. For normal users Transliterated layout
is necessary. for professional typist Old tyepwriter keyboard layout
is must(not developed).
3. if we give only phonetic and inscript layout, people won't use both
input method.
Comment 5 Leon Ho 2004-11-08 06:29:57 EST
Ok thanks Jaya. That sounds than replacing phonetic. Jatin, is it possible for
your to generate a patch just like you did for other language a while ago for
this layout?

tamil unitle phonetic layout patch
Comment 7 Jatin Nansi 2004-11-10 05:33:27 EST
This layout adds a phonetic layout, keeping the existing
transliterated layout intact - as requested by Jaya (Tamil translator).
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2004-11-10 07:28:07 EST
Patched add to pkg cvs.
Comment 9 Leon Ho 2004-11-21 20:28:40 EST
Patch did not include the new file in Makefile.am so it didn't get
installed on previous patch. Tagoh-san fixed it on cvs. It will
reflect the changes on next build.
Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2004-11-22 10:06:59 EST
Should be fixed in 12.1-9.
Comment 11 Jatin Nansi 2004-12-08 09:23:20 EST
this is now available in im-sdk, resolving bug.
