Dear All,

 

Here is a summary of our call yesterday. 

 

1.       Meikal has reached out to experts and shared additional sources in support of the two code points 0697 and 0751, as per details below.  We will share the additional information with the IP to get their feedback on whether this addresses the concerns regarding additional evidence.

a.       Lorna Evans provided the (T)chadian standard (attached) for 0697; calendar for 2012 is also shared with this letter (supporting recent use) – given in the Mbe calendar image attached (in the first line of text)

b.      Ngom provided reference to additional discussion in the support of current use of 0751 in Wolof (see pg. 357 second paragraph of the attached text “From Dust to Digital”)

c.       0751 also confirmed by Mbaye who shares the reference picture using this code point at http://eap.bl.uk/database/large_image.a4d?digrec=771119;catid=132903;r=6334 (e.g. see the first word: جلب in the first line of the second column in the two column text portion, the ب has three dots above it)

2.       I will develop a list of test labels to check each of the WLE rules (and variants, as needed).  Some of these labels will be nonsense strings as real world examples are not available for cases where one has to switch the keyboards.  Others can also contribute to this list.

3.       In response to Patrik’s comment regarding the IAB statement, we will add the following text at the end of the Repertoire section of the proposal (please feel free to edit and suggest changes):

a.       The current work is limited to the analysis of the repertoire short-listed in the MSR as per the procedure.  TF-AIDN realizes that the current MSR is limited to version 6.3 and will keep following later versions of MSR updated to include later versions of the Unicode standard.  In these cases, if MSR will include additional Arabic script code points, TF-AIDN will analyze them and make additional proposal(s) for adding the relevant subset to the current repertoire being proposed, also considering any security and stability implications

b.      TF-AIDN is also aware of the recent IAB statement. As TF-AIDN has not included any combining marks in its proposal and only the code points which represent the composed forms, for the Root Zone LGR, the task force considers that the issue does not remain relevant in context of this proposal

4.       We will update the proposal to address the editorial changes and share with TF-AIDN to review

5.       The updated proposal will be shared with TF-AIDN and last call will be made for one week for members to review.  Based on the review, the proposal will be finalized and submitted to the Integration Panel for their final evaluation.  

 

Please let us know if you have any queries or would like to suggest any changes on the proposed next steps.  

 

Regards,
Sarmad
