What's the actual status, though? As Jarkko indicated, the proposal is
almost 5 years old and it's been in the Roadmap ever since, with little
or no progress since then (at least not visible from the outside). We
know you may not have as much time as before to champion such proposals.
Are any experts in the Hungarian user community (perhaps Hosszu Gábor or
Fűr Zoltán) able to supply the needed final effort?
Rovásírás is a delightful little script, with delightful RTL
directionality (rare for a European script used as recently as 1483) and
delightfully non-intuitive (sometimes bizarre) ligatures. It would be a
shame if it couldn't get the support necessary for standardization in
BTW, I wonder if there might have been some confusion between the
Pipeline, which generally contains only those characters proposed for
the *next* version of Unicode, and the Roadmap, which contains a much
broader range of proposed scripts, including some for which no formal
proposal even exists.
