ULS Telugu Transliteration fails for typing Guninthas of character form జ్ఞ
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Steps to Reproduce:

Enable 2010 Wikieditor toolbar in preferences.
Open any page to edit
Select Telugu Transliteration (లిప్యంతరీకరణ)  as input
Type SAstraj~nuDu

Actual Results:
శాస్త్రజ్ఞఉడు
Expected Results:
శాస్త్రజ్ఞుడు

Environment:
Ubuntu 18.04
Firefox 68.0.2(64bit)

Additional remarks:
All Guninthas (vowel suffixes i.e A aa i I ii ee u U uu oo R Ru ~l e E ai o O au ) of the complex consonant జ్ఞ also do not shape correctly.

This is not a problem when using inscript method. This is a major irritant, forcing users to resort to external primitive tools to get the word correct.

Hi,

Thanks for creating the task.

@tuxnani once submitted a patch for it. It probably fixed some things, but it still didn't fix everything. I left comments on that old patch, but they weren't addressed.

Since it was very old, I rebased it, and the current version can be found at https://github.com/wikimedia/jquery.ime/pull/580 . It still needs fixes. I cannot make them myself because I don't understand the Telugu alphabet well enough. If someone who understands this alphabet well enough, like @tuxnani or anybody else, can work with me on this, I'll be happy to help complete it.
