I did get a list of characters from Praveen and, I have communicated with
the likes of Brion about it. Sadly there is only so much that I can do. If
there is one thing I want to prevent is that people consider me a ¨toxic"
personality, a risk you run when you are trying to hard.
The list I asked from Bellayet is in the standard order as people expect
them I am told. I am not so sure of the list I received from Praveen as the
vowels and the consonants are separate..
Anyway, it turns out that they are also looking for a Vietnamese input
What I can tell you is that it is best to work together, even find
programmers if we can and be nice, friendly but persistent in order to
achieve our goal. The good news is that Wikipedia on the mobile is
considered a priority!!
The other thing is, we are concentrating at the moment on getting Wikipedia
right, there are however many websites outside of the WMF that would benefit
from a proper input method. To get this we need cooperation from the
manufacturers of mobile phones. This is why I have set up a Facebook "cause"
called "Enable Wikipedias on the mobile phone". If you are on Facebook, I
will really appreciate it if you make this your cause as well.
