+Requirements for adding new orth file:
+* we are following up to the locale name, 2 or 3 letter code
+ in ISO 639 and ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code to determine a
+ filename. if it's not yet available, in advance, you
+ should get it fixed in glibc or so.
+* Please add a reference URL (written in English as far as
+ possible) into the orth file that explains the code
+ coverage for the certain language. this would helps to
+ review if it has enough coverage.
+* no need to add all of the codepoints for the certain
+ language. good enough if it covers most frequently used
+ codepoints in it.
+To update existing orth files:
+* Please make sure how the changes affects to the existing
+ fonts and no regressions except it is expected behavior.
+* Please add any reference URL in bugzilla or any
+ explanation why it needs to be added/removed and also why
+ current orth file doesn't work.
+* Please provide a test case what fonts are supposed to be
+ accepted against the change and what fonts aren't.
