Uniform script name format

Post by NinnaD »

The vast majority of script names in FC-generated glyph names adhere to the 4-letter format, with notable exceptions:
-canadianaboriginal
-chorasmian
-cuneiform
-divesakuru
-elymaic
-khitansmallscript
-nandinagari
-nyiakengpuachuehmong
-wancho
-yezidi

While "-wancho" isn't that much longer than, say, "-ugar", and thus easy to display - having a 2-letter name, followed by a 20-letter script designation (as in e.g. "ma-nyiakengpuachuehmong"), could, imho, benefit from a do-over.

The files we currently use are over two years old. We will update some of the files we use to generate the glyph names.

So with the next upcoming major release ma-nyiakengpuachuehmong will become ma-hmnp

Expect these:

-canadianaboriginal -> unchanged
-chorasmian -> chrs
-cuneiform -> unchanged
-divesakuru -> diak
-elymaic -> elym
-khitansmallscript -> kits
-nandinagari -> nand
-nyiakengpuachuehmong -> hmnp
-wancho -> wcho
-yezidi -> yezi
