Are you planning to include other Arabic character language such as the Old Malay (Jawi)?
There are several people in Malaysia that are interested on having a Jawi-enabled Linux,
but the problem is they are not really sure how to do it properly (the font, the encoding,
the input method, etc.)
I hope you can put this issue in your thought list, so that they can learn how to
experiment with the Arabic localization.
