    You don't need to speculate on my intentions. I was only refering to the workgroup about coded character sets. It is really visible from the homepage of the main website hosted by DKUUG that this group is stalled since 2004 (and the title has a strike through to make this even more visible).

    If there was not so many ugly acronyms nearly impossible to remember in the workgroup name, I would have not forgotten to specify one part of it...

    And it's true that SC2 in general has not published new standards since then, only working drafts, meeting agendas, procedural ballots and amendments, all for an already published standard, namely ISO/IEC 10646:2003. But its website is really obscure and does not exhibit any effort to clarify its activities.
