Please state the precise date of the meeting in Dublin to which your msg
(below) refers, because people I know in Hungary mine might be in
Ireland then and may wish to participate, as they were not given a
chance to do so yet.
Erkki I. Kolehmainen:
> Dear All,
> There are presently three quite different proposals for the encoding
> of Old Hungarian (with various names):
> N3566 by Gábor Bakonyi (revision of N3526), N3531 by Michael Everson
> and André Szabolcs Szelp, and N3527 by Gábor Hosszzú.
> It was agreed in the Hong Kong meeting that there would have to be
> cooperation between the proposers before WG2 could seriously consider
> the encoding of the script. Far too little has happened to meet this
> Outside WG2, we did organize an ad hoc on Old Hungarian at the CEN
> TC304 meeting in Vienna on November 5, 2008. The participants were
> Michael Everson (Ireland), Christian Galinski (Austria), Gábor Hosszú
> (Hungary), Adam Joó (Hungary), Erkki I. Kolehmainen (Finland), Marc
> Wilhelm Küster (chair), Karl Pentzlin (Germany), and Roman Grahle
> The relevant resolution (9/2008) was: Subject: Encoding of the Rovas
> script - "TC304 encourages the different parties to attempt to find
> consensus on the character repertoire prior to discussing details of
> character encoding for the Rovas script (unanimous)".
> Unfortunately, this has not led to any real results. Michael Everson
> had prepared the document N3532 "Mapping between Old Hungarian
> proposals in N3531, N3527, and N3526", but it seems to have been
> essentially ignored by the other parties.
> Although I won't participate in the next (Dublin) meeting, I find the
> situation close to intolerable to the participants from the various
> National Bodies. I'd like to propose that an ad hoc be set up early in
> the meeting with the clear objective to agree on either one proposal
> for processing at the meeting or at least the way forward to come up
> with a processable proposal for the following meeting.
> Sincerely, Erkki
