Proposed SC 2 Resolution on Transfer of ISO/TC 46/SC 4 Character Sets Projects
Source: Michael Everson, Liaison from JTC1/SC2 to TC46/SC4
I recommend that SC2 adopt the following resolution:
SC2 recognizes the commitment which the Library community has made to the UCS by TC46/SC4's cessation of development and augmentation of its 7-bit and 8-bit standards.
SC2 further appreciates the willingness of TC46/SC4 to transfer responsibility for existing ISO character set standards to SC2.
In order to assume the stability of the existing standards SC2 resolves to do the following:
1. SC2 will make no changes in the transferred standards without TC46/SC4 approval. This means that at the periodic review of each of these standards, TC46/SC4 will be specifically requested to provide a statement with regard to its position on the standard in question.
2. SC will not withdraw any of these standards without TC46/SC4 approval. This means that at the periodic review of each of these standards, TC46/SC4 will be specifically requested to provide a statement with regard to its position on the standard in question.
SC2 resolves to delegate responsibility for the maintenance of these standards to its WG3.
