Please send it also to Roman, so that it is available for all m68k users.
Citing the FAQ:
You need to make one by yourself or get one from
where Roman Hodek has started collecting Amiga and Atari keymaps. Get
the keymap you want to install, say de-amiga.map, and put it in
/usr/lib/kbd/keytables/ (In newer kbd versions, hopefully m68k keymaps
will also be included.)
Ok, the FAQ is a little outdated in this point, but ask Roman where to
upload it so that he can include your map there.
