Both me and Arjun did it in the past.  It's not complicated:

 - checkout the Freedesktop xkeyboard-config CVS
 - read the rules for submitting xkeyboard-config patches:
 - apply your changes there
 - diff to obtain a patch
 - open a bug in Freedesktop's bugzilla with the patch attached
 - wait for Sergey Udaltsov to apply it

In parallel, you can add the patch to the package:

 - obtain a Fedora account if you do not have one already
 - checkout Fedora CVS for xkeyboard-config
 - go to the OLPC-2 branch (check with dgilmore if you also need OLPC-3)
 - add your patch (see how the others were done)
 - commit your changes
 - rebuild in Koji
 - your changes will appear in the next joyride build

I could do this work for the tr keyboard, but my time is very limited
and long term we need to find another volunteer to replace me.
