Bug#202200: xlibs: Wrong symbol in X11/xkb/symbols/ru_yawerty

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.2.1-6
Severity: normal

[I have also reported this bug at http://bugs.xfree86.org, bug
number 516.  Since, however, it is hard to predict when it will get
fixed upstream, and since it renders the ru_yawerty input method
unusable, it would make sense to fix it at least on the Debian
side pending the upstream change.]

I use XFree86 4.2.1-6 on Debian GNU/Linux testing.  The file


contains the lines

   key <AD06> {        [         y,    Y               ],
		       [ Cyrillic_hardsign, Cyrillic_HARDSIGN ]       };

However, the Y key should be used to enter not ъ / Ъ (U+044A /
U+042A, the hard sign, occuring rarely if ever in normal Russian
text), but rather ы / Ы (U+044B / U+042B, occuring constantly in
normal Russian text).  The above lines should therefore be changed

   key <AD06> {        [         y,    Y               ],
		       [ Cyrillic_yeru, Cyrillic_YERU	]       };

Compare also the equivalent behaviour of the GNU Emacs input
method "cyrillic-yawerty".

Thank you for fixing this,
