08:42 indradg   hi cait
09:08 cait      hi indradg :)
09:13 indradg   cait: I dug deeper into bug 19084 looks to me that the root of the rendering problem starts from the unpacku method in Text::PDF::Utils, which pushes the unicode chars into an array. The Indic scripts are rendered using grapheme clusters (a utf-8 latin based example would be an accented e where the 'e' and the accent are two separate codepoints under Unicode), if I'm not mistaken the unpacku method is breaking up the grapheme cluster and handling the
09:13 indradg   chars one by one... causing the issue
09:14 cait      oh!
09:14 cait      but that means we probably can't fix in Koha?
09:14 indradg   yeah :(
09:15 indradg   I tried my hand at some nasty hacks... didn't get the desired results
09:15 cait      is the library still maintained?
09:16 cait      hm doesn't look like it was reported already
