I would *strongly* urge any further work on Cyrillic to be conducted
in coordination with Alexander Berdnikov who have collected a lot of
info on Cyrillic scripts in the xUSSR while working on TeX's T2
encoding. He contacted almost all available experts in various xUSSR
organizations and I don't think anyone else have all that information.

He gave a talk on EuroTeX'99 about his work on T2, but I don't have
URL handy - EuroTeX'99 archives should carry his paper in PS. Look in
vicinity of <>.

His address used to be <>, though now I can see him
mostly post from FidoNET. I'll try to reach him ASAP.

SY, Uwe
