License: not specified in port
This is a set of two keyboards that provides a single implementation for many
Roman writing systems across Africa, based on results compiled from data from
Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo.

The keyboards are written in Keyman keyboard language and developed by SIL
Non-Roman Script Initiative (NRSI). The software is distributed under the
X11-style license (

This port installs the keyboard so that it can be used through SCIM or
IBus KMFL IMEngine (textproc/scim-kmfl-imengine, textproc/ibus-kmfl).
Two layouts are provided:

  * mnemonic layout for any keyboard (using deadkeys);
  * positional layout for US keyboard (using deadkeys and/or shift-states, i.e.
    RALT and LALT keys).

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING

    Affects: users of textproc/*kmfl*
      KMFL keyboard ports are now shared between IBus and SCIM KMFL IMEngines
      (textproc/ibus-kmfl and textproc/scim-kmfl-imengine). Thus, the prefix
      'scim-' is dropped from keyboard ports names.
      Similar to m17n, both engines now search engine-neutral locations,
      ${LOCALBASE}/share/kmfl/ and ~/.kmfl/. Users have to move their local
      keyboard files from ~/.scim/kmfl/ to ~/.kmfl/.

- Patch SCIM KMFL engine (textproc/scim-kmfl-imengine) to use
  the same neutral keyboard repository as textproc/ibus-kmfl does,
  ${LOCALBASE}/share/kmfl/. This approach is similar to m17n (its
  keyboard databases, devel/m17n-db and textproc/m17n-contrib, are
  shared between textproc/scim-m17n and textproc/ibus-m17n). This
  patch also makes both these KMFL engine ports to read ~/.kmfl/
  instead of SCIM-oriented ~/.scim/kmfl/.
  There is UPDATING text that informs KMFL users about this.

- Patch keyboard ports (7 of them) to install data to the new
  repository, ${LOCALBASE}/share/kmfl/; the keyboard ports were
  SCIM-only and used to install to ${LOCALBASE}/share/scim/kmfl/.

- Adapt descriptions in other KMFL ports (textproc/kmflcomp,

- While we are here, do some additional maintenance.

- Remove the 7 old ports.

- Please see the PR for full details.
