Hello Andre!
I spoke with Steve, and we decided that I can add two more symbols to  
the ISWA today...

I will add:

1.  the R handshape with a circle base under Group 2
(we have always been writing R with a square base in the past, but now  
we will have both choices)

2. the R-Handshape-with-Baby-Finger with a circle base, under Group 7
(for your sign for ROI in French-Canadian Sign Language)
so there will be both a square base and a circle base for that handshape

If there are any more requests please make them NOW, rather than  
later...because we will sooner or later have to load the ISWA into  
SignPuddle so you can use it, and once we load it in, it will take  
much longer before any additions can be added...

Many thanks -

Val ;-)
