Gagauz Layout


It would be much appreciated if you help create a keyboard layout for the Gagauz language.

My current skills only allow me to attach how the layout should look like, but not the .xml/.lst files, patches, etc.

Regarding the country to put the layout under, that's probably "md" (Moldova, the Republic of) since most Gagauz people live in this country. 
Including the layout by reference in "ua" and "tr" files would probably make sense as well, 1) as there are Gagauz people in the Ukraine, 2) and as Crimean tatar is linked to "tr", Gagauz might be too.

The language code is probably "gag". http://www.sil.org/iso639-3/documentation.asp?id=gag

Sorry that I can contribute to this extent only.

I am confused. That layout cannot be default for Moldova, right? But I need some default variants for the country. What would you recommend?
Comment 2 workisgreat 2012-08-29 09:15:22 UTC
That's correct, Gagauz cannot be default for Moldova.
The default layout for Moldova should be Romanian.
Russian can also be included as it's the 2nd most spoken language in the country.
Comment 3 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2012-08-29 23:26:50 UTC
Ok, now it is in git. The patch was not actually compilable. Anyway, please check it from git

There was an error on line 41:
quotedb1 (number 1) instead of quotedbl (letter L) which prevented from typing the symbol - ".

The uploaded file fixes the issue.

I noticed another inaccuracy in the layout - the Ccedilla symbol was mistakenly assigned to 2 keys.

The attached file contains an update to the layout.

It would be great if this change can be committed too when and if possible. Thank you.
