    According to <www.eki.ee>, there is a currently an effort to convert the
    writing of Tatar from Cyrillic to Latin.

    1. Does somebody have more information about that effort?

    Eki lists four characters as needed but missing in Unicode (see

    2. The case pair for barred o is encoded (U+019F and U+0275), and it
    seems that their confusion comes from less-than-perfect but annotated
    name for U+019F, and from the usage remark "African". Can we
    authoritatively tell them that those two characters are the ones they
    want? Can we add a "Tatar" usage remark to both?

    3. The case pair n with descender is definitely not encoded, and from my
    memory of the discussion of ghe with descender, we would want to encode
    them as separate characters (rather than with combining descenders on
    "n"). Is anybody working on that proposal?


    PS: sorry for the double post to unicode and unicore. However, given the
    current state of unicode@unicode.org, this seems the best course of action.
