Certainly! It will be a great opportunity to come up with virtual keyboard
as required for each language with participation of the relevant users.
Active indic language wikipedians can play a key role in this initiative.
The proposed mode of standard development is open for participation by
every one. Though for the final balloting and to decide on any
alternatives, IEEE-SA membership will be needed, which again is being
offered at reduced rates for Indians. The official Work Group will be
kick off in January. I request interested people to subscribe to the mailing
