Adding new ruleset(s) for Scottish Gaelic (gd)
I'm involved in the localisation of Firefox and Wikipedia into Scots Gaelic and both have asked me to raise a ticket to add Scots Gaelic plurals.
A slight issue is the fact that there are two number systems, one decimal and one vigesimal. If only one can be added, then that should be the decimal system.
I've looked at the formula rules but I don't think I'd get that right so apologies for posting prose - I've condensed it as much as possible. It's probably quicker that way than someone trying to make sense of a forumula that I've cooked up!
1, 11 >> Form 1
2, 12 >> Form 2
3-10, 13-19 >> Form 3
20 and anything above >> Form 4
1, 11, 21, 31 >> Form 1
2, 12, 22, 32 >> Form 2
3-10, 13-19, 23-29, 33-39 >> Form 3
20, 41 and anything above >> Form 4
No special form is needed for decimals.
I can provide sources, if that's needed, just let me know what format.

I'll go ahead and take this one since I'm doing the data as well.

I asked Michael: I assume that the pattern repeats after 100, so 100 -> form 4, 101/111 -> form 1, 102/112 -> form 2, etc. Correct?
And he replied: No, in the decimal system, beyond twenty anything uses Form 4

Ok, fine with sticking to decimal. But is the fact that Gaelic treats 1,2,11,12 as singular going to cause a problem as mentioned above? I'm just going to give you two examples to make sure we both have it right - I'm probably just being overly cautious but I'd like to avoid either of us having to spend time chasing down errors.
