Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
Briefly, the new issue is:

#102 Proposed Update to UAX #15, Unicode Normalization Forms

There is a Proposed Update to UAX #15, which specifies a new
Normalization Process for Stabilized Strings. The key concept is
that for a given normalization form, once a Unicode string has
been successfully normalized according to that process, it will
never change if subsequently normalized again, in any version of
Unicode, past or future. This definition depends on an anticipated
further tightening of the Unicode Stability Policies such that
normalization of assigned characters will not change in future
versions of Unicode. Details are in the proposed update itself.

Please send in any feedback on this update by February 5th, 2007.
