Re: Updated Indic Patches



Thanks Eric & Tor.

Haven't done any system level coding so can't help
much here. Hope the switch to ft2 backend takes place
sooner since it'll be a great help for Indic

Unfortunately, I find very few Indians working on
supporting Indian languages. It is really very nice of
you to have worked so hard on supporting non-native

Best Regards,

and is happy in himself by himself is the man of
