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

    131 Han Exemplar characters

    The Unicode Locales (CLDR) contains exemplar characters for each
    locale/language. These are the characters customarily needed for the
    language in question. For Han characters, the Unicode CLDR has been using a
    fairly small set, but there is a request to include more of the commonly
    used characters. There are a number of possible ways to derive this set,
    and the CLDR technical committee would like feedback on this. Details are
    in the background document.
