Description From 2008-08-15 23:48:08
$ rpm -qf "$(which fc-list)"
fontconfig-2.6.0-alt1
$ 

The Erzya and Moksha orthographies use the same alphabet as the Russian
language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erzya#Writing,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moksha_language#Writing_system ); and these
languages have ISO 639-2 codes: "myv", "mdf".

fontconfig doesn't know about the orthographies of these languages: 

$ fc-list :lang=myv | wc
      0       0       0
$ fc-list :lang=mdf | wc
      0       0       0
$ fc-list :lang=ru | wc
    309     988   16439
$ 

-- it is expected that the lists for Russian and for Erzya or Moksha will be
the same.

(/usr/share/doc/fontconfig*/fontconfig-user.html says: 

"Fontconfig has orthographies for several languages built into the library. 
...
It currently supports 122 of the 139 languages named in ISO 639-1, 141 of the
languages with two-letter codes from ISO 639-2 and another 30 languages with
only three-letter codes."

The ISO 639-2 codes "myv" and "mdf" could well be added.)
