I wanted to move the lower case hard sign of the phonetic cyrillic layout away
from the often used underscore character.
I also found that the capital hard sign was missing.
So instead of the upper row of
I came up with
My swapping of CHE and YU was an attempt to tie the alphabetically close letters
together (Ю close to Э).
I changed the location of ё and Ё because I assumed that the hard sign was to
occur more frequently than YO.
I will be attaching the diff file shortly. Regards,

add another phonetic variant of the russian keyboard (phonetic2)
Ilguiz, two things:
1. What is the "phonetic" layout in Windows? Is it like yours - or like existing
2. Would it be possible to define "phonetic2" as "phonetic" + "smth" - i.e. use

Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't seem to provide a phonetic Cyrillic layout,
according to its web site,
There isn't a grass-root standard either. The list of various layouts at
http://klava.ruswin.net/ doesn't refer to any phonetic layout as preferred or

I figured most of my changes weren't justified enough. So I am suggesting to
only take the lower case hard sign off the underscore and include the upper case
hard sign. The existing variant "phonetic" could be changed because the
modification is affecting only one original placement. A patch is attached.
It would be nice to move che/CHE away from the plus/equals button. E.g., these
letters could reside on top of 7 and 8.

the minimal change to the existing variant "phonetic" of the Russian keyboard layout
Well, syntactically this patch is ok. Are you sure people using ru(phonetic)
would be happy to lose the percent sign (I don't care too much about
asciicircum)? Also, actually, http://klava.ruswin.net/ gives keys 6 and 7 for
the hardsign, not 5 and 6 - are your sure your patch is right?
