Proper Syriac package

Description of problem: Syriac is not Arabic (used in Syria). After activating a Syriac keyborad layout, you cannot type Syriac, but Arabic. Actual mim file in ROSA Syriac package is not Syriac, but Arabic. 

Please replace the mim file in the Syriac language package with that in the package m17n-db-syriac-1.3.3-48.el5.noarch.rpm found at http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=m17n-db-syriac

If you replace the package by that mentioned above, Syriac works OK.

Thank you!

Hm, in ROSA Desktop Fresh we don't have separate m17n-db-* packages for every language, just a single m17n-db package which contains files for all supported languages. Syriac file from that package look similar to the one suggested by you, though our is a little newer...

The bug is here again. It's come with the newest updates. Once you add a Syriac layout and switch it on, you cannot type Syriac (but Arabic). Syriac is not Arabic, its scripts (fonts), its unicode codes, and its mim-file (layout file) are completely different from those of Arabic. The confusion is because Syrian Arabic layout exists, it is used in Syria by Arabophones, but *Syrian Arabic* and *Syriac* are completely different languages.
