chart imageThe Unicode Technical Committee is soliciting feedback on
pending additions to the draft repertoire of characters, to help
discover any errors in character names, incorrect glyphs, or other
problems. There is a short window of opportunity to review and comment
on the repertoire additions noted below.

Additional repertoire for two amendments to ISO/IEC 10646:2017 (5th
Edition) is under review. See the associated repertoire in: Feedback on
draft additional repertoire for Amendment 1.3 (PDAM) to ISO/IEC
10646:2017 (5th edition) <> and
Feedback on draft additional repertoire for Amendment 2 (PDAM) to
ISO/IEC 10646:2017 (5th edition) <>.

Review of the Amendment 1.3 draft repertoire is especially urgent, as
that content will be finalized by SC2 in September, and is scheduled for
eventual publication in next year's Unicode 11.0. Note that the
hentaigana and emoji portions of the amendment have already been
accelerated for imminent publication in Unicode 10.0, so further
comments on character names for those portions of the repertoire are no
longer actionable.

There is more time to provide feedback on the Amendment 2 draft
repertoire, but note that the addition of Mtavruli Georgian as part of
that repertoire is also rather urgent.

The Unicode Standard is developed in synchrony with ISO/IEC 10646. After
ISO balloting is completed on any repertoire additions, no further
changes or corrections will be possible. (See the FAQ Standards
Developing Organizations <> for
additional information on the stages in ISO standards development.)
Advance feedback on these repertoire additions will help inform the UTC
discussions about its own contribution to the ISO balloting process.

Documents referenced in the draft repertoire with numbers such as
L2/15-088 are available in the UTC Document Registry

For information about how to discuss this Public Review Issue and how to
supply formal feedback, please see the feedback and discussion
