Description of problem:
with new xorg greek keyboard can't be used.
Combination keys (left and right SHIFT) that change group from USA to GREEK keyboard dont work.
Also GNOME keyboard applet although can change keyboard indication from us to greek the user still cant write anything in greek language.
Lookin in xorg.conf file i see a change beetween the xorg 6.8 to xorg 7 
Option	    "XkbLayout" "us,el" (6.8)
Option	    "XkbLayout" "us,gr" (7.0)
I dont know much  techinicaly about the reason of this change and what have to be done
but i know for sure new and more experienced Greek fedora users will have problems before greek keyboard is active.
This should work out of the box like fc4 , fc3 did.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fedora core 5 test2 and try to use greek keyboard to write greek characters

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

This bug report was unfortunately prematurely closed by poorly thought out
automated Fedora bug triaging attempts.  I've reassigned it to "devel"
which is aparently immune to this rediculous bug triaging automation
nonsense, so hopefully it wont get blindly forced to closed again by
future braindead attempts of this nature.

The proposed fix for this problem is:

I've added the bug to the FC5Target tracker, and am CC'ing release engineering
for review.  If ACK'd by releng, the patch will get included in the next test
build of xkbdata.  Once someone experiencing the problem tests the new packages
and confirms they work, without any regressions, they'll likely move into

Thanks in advance.
