Given that the Unicode data files provided in on the Unicode FTP
server in ftp://ftp.unicode.org/Public/X.Y-UpdateZ are incremental,
thereby requiring one to manually walk backwards through time to find
the "current" version of files not changed in an update, wouldn't it
make sense to put symbolic links to the previous versions?
For example, add symlinks in
Would include a symlink back to
And so on and so on.
These links could even be created programmatically with a small bit of
scripting. I'll even write the script, if necessary.
Regardless, I think it would be beneficial to be able to download
*all* relevant data files for a given release of Unicode without
trolling through the directory hierarchy.
