I'm the one to blame too because of the long idle status of the
project :-(. We're al quite busy very school.
About the changes that you have done to the fonts, they definitely
have to be submitted somewhere. It happend before that some work had
been lost because it was never submitted. I donno much about the new
bug tracking system. If you can submit data files there, you should
submit it. If this is not possible and there is no reaction from
Mohammed Yousif, send it to me then and I will placed one the CVS.

Wasn't someone working on the same kind of project too? Someone else
was also developing a browser based quran viewer with XML and XSL. I
thought Ossama Khayat, but I might be wrong. It is better to
collaborate with the developer of this project
