Ok. That is
very fair. I will turn back to you as soon as I have more in the hand.
Honestly, I do not see how I achieve a reasonably official status, except that
I write an article about it in Wikipedia and refer to it in the relevant summary
I will do this
in any case.  If you're interested, here
you can see some information uploaded today, including the OpenOffice and
Firefox extension:
This Transcription
method will hopefully be used for the correspondence in a cultural society in
Frankfurt. The publication of a monthly magazine in this script is also
discussed for the future.  Thanks so much
again for your support.

Understood. Well, in general to add support for a language we need a reference to an ISO code
or standard, since OpenOffice has big interoperability requirements, which would break if
we decide unilaterally that we will support a new language.

This could help in getting some official recognition for the language, perhaps. Or the spec
Rob shared might be of help. Honestly I don't know how hard it is to have your transliteration
"standardized"; it might also turn out to be easier than expected, but this is not something
we can help you with. Surely, once you reach some "official" status, you can contact us again
and we can support the language directly in OpenOffice, with no need for workarounds like
the one that you are currently using (i.e., "squatting" Esperanto) and that seems to be the
best solution at the moment.
