Dear All,

Please find attached, modified Devanagari LGR document with all the changes as suggested by IP accommodated/responded to. This is accompanied with following files.
1. Devanagari LGR modified XML file. ( modified as per IP feedback and additional Bengali cross-script variants)
2. Test Labels file (with more labels covering almost entire character-set, all the exclusion code-points) (Thanks to Neha Gupta for this.)
3. A separate file that contains the labels that produce variants.
4. Response to IP for each of the individual changes suggested by them.

As discussed during the F2F I have added the possible Bengali cross-script variants in Devanagari.

Additional text regarding ZWJ and ZWNJ has also been added which can (and most probably should) be used by all the other script LGRs (Last paragraph of Point ii)

Gurumukhi variants have also been harmonized and the tables updated accordingly.

A short paragraph describing the process of harmonization of cross-script variants has also been added at the end of the point 6.5.

While we await the responses on the mailing list for extensive cross-script analysis of other scripts with Devanagari (I have already heard from Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Gurmukhi, Bengali and Gujarati about not having any additional cases of cross-script variants) I have already added the line in Devanagari LGR that no cases were found. As I am travelling from tomorrow onwards for a week, I may have limited connectivity hence sending in advance. Once we get confirmation from all the scripts (which we most probably will), I request co-chairs to consider as a submission to IP.
