    More on the latter, but slightly different. We believe it would be
    good for both opensource community and commercial IT industry that we
    transfer (at least a part of) the project to Unicode Consortium, after
    hearing the concerns on difficulty of some commercial companies to
    join the project due to the strong perception of as
    opensource/Linux advocates, even though CLDR project is not
    specifically bound to Linux.

    We hope this transfer would gain further participations from wider

    Regarding confusions, I have to say it is anticipated, since the project
    is still in transition(for example, side has not been
    finished necessary procedure to finalize this, so does
    not have a press release statement ready yet - this announcement is a
    little too early), I guess it will all be sorted out as time goes by.
