Ossetian keyboard layout

patch touching symbols/ru and rules/base.xml.in
adding os and os_winkeys, base on ru(basic) and ru(winkeys),
with os as Georgian and Russian keyboard, and os_winkeys as Russian keyboard.

The layouts use the proper Unicode Cyrillic ae, although Latin ae is commonly
used (mostly due to lack in font support although this is irrelevant on most
Linux/*BSD).
Comment 2 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2006-09-01 15:10:47 UTC
Something is wrong with your patch. Anyway, I've added it to symbols/ru and
rules/base.xml.in - as ru(os) and ru(os_winkeys). Could you please check it in
CVS. Should it be also added to symbols/ge in order to be available as ge(os)?
Comment 3 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-06-12 16:07:00 UTC
Denis, I overlooked - is there real need in Unicode characters here? May be, some existing X keysyms would do?

According to http://www.joshuaproject.net/peoples.php?rop3=107699 95,000 Ossetians live in Georgia. Wikipedia says 20 % of Ossetians do.
I don't know if that's enough to add ge(os).

Where can I find the list of existing X keysyms. I couldn't find U+04D5, U+04D4 in keysymdef.h.

I would add ge(os) - unless there are some political reasons not to do it.

Well, keysymdef.h is the definitive source, so let's leave it as it is.

AE and ae (in latin). If xkeyboard-layout sorts it by itself in Cyrillic and Latin. But I am not sure...
Æ in Danish is AE (as X symbol)

Comment 7 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-06-13 15:01:27 UTC
Added ge(os).

2Miron: latin AE and cyrillic AE is no the same thing
