Description hdu@apache.org 2012-03-27 15:12:55 UTC
main/sal/textenc/convertiscii.tab has two tables for ISCII<->Unicode conversion under a license that is incompatible for a product released under the ASF umbrella.

Replacing them using the data from
ftp://ftp.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/VENDORS/APPLE/DEVANAGA.TXT
looks simple.

Adding a reference to issue 15672 where the tables were introduced.
Comment 2 hdu@apache.org 2012-03-29 06:26:45 UTC
The tables are removed for now. Byte encodings other than UTF-8 have been obsolete for many years anyway.
