Yes Bishakha. Konkani is one of the few languages in India that has the Script controversy. In fact it also makes it a huge challenge to develop Konkani Wikipedia.
We have discussed some of these aspects in our Konkani Wikipedia work-plan . Also recently during our (CISA2K) visit to Goa almost everyone wanted to know how Wikipedia could address this issue? For instance, see the Herald - Goa newspaper on Konkani Wikipedia . On the same list a while ago, Santhosh Thottingal pointed to a very useful solution, Automatic conversion in Konkani Language, that he proposed sometime ago . We are hoping to build a Konkani Wikipedia community first in the coming months, who could then arrive at a solution and work with the WMF Language Engineering Team. It will be a fascinating cultural-historical problem to look at how it gets addressed on an Open Knowledge platform like the Wikipedia.
