Thanks Yair for the work.

I don't think it's quite necessary. One reason is that only people
directly interested in RTL support will be there, while most of the time
one wants comment from main developers of modules or other "interested"
hackers. You don't get it there.

We've been using a tracker bug for everything blocking perfect Persian
support in GNOME for some while, and it's been quite handy. It's
I suggest you create an aliased tracker too. When you want to add this
"keyword" to a bug, you just add "persian" to the bugs it blocks...
However, I think you may just want to follow the 'persian' bug. Almost
everything related to RTL support is listed there, and the
Persian-specific stuff is not that much.
