    The status is what you would expect. We had a core character set, but
    some users wanted explicit ligatures. I resisted that because
    ligation, while rare, is productive or at least unpredictable. Then a
    hiatus occurred because there were discussions about whether ZWJ
    could do the ligation. It turns out that it can, so that problem is
    solved. Another issue is whether the default directionality of the
    script should be LTR or RTL.

    I have not been pressing further on this script because of other
    commitments and lack of resources. Please see Unicode Technical Note
    #4 for information about how you
    (all) can help. And it's tax deductible.
