Re: New layout for Newa

Dear K Handa,
Thank you for reviewing this submission.
The script is called Prachalit which has been assigned the Newa block in unicode. This script is used for the language Nepal Bhasa aka Newa Bhaye spoken by Newar diaspora in Nepal. I named the layout newa-traditional, newa to match Newa unicode block and traditional as it is similar to nepali traditional layout. Please suggest if there is any convention on naming layouts.

Thanks and regards

Ok, I'll see the code.  By the way, both "newa" and "Prachalit" seem to
be script names.  Could you tell me the their relationship?
