Re: Public Review Issues: several closing today

    Note that the closing dates are to allow feedback before the subsequent
    Unicode Technical Committee meeting. The committee will consider the public
    feedback that it has received, and the comments from the membership. It
    doesn't have to advance a proposed update if there are still open issues.

    The UAXes do have a timetable, since they have to be ready for Unicode 5.1.
    However, they will have one more round before they go final, at the UTC
    meeting early next year. The later they are in the cycle the harder they are
    to change, so the earlier the feedback is in, the better.

    So, if you think there are problems in the text, then you should file a
    public review form with your concerns. The most effective feedback states
    clearly -- and concisely -- what each problem is, and if possible, what a
    recommended change to the text to fix the problem would be.

    The review period date for #10 was announced as
    > Due date for comments to the current draft is: 2007/10/16.
    so the date on is incorrect and will need to
    be fixed. And certainly if there are issues that depend on the interaction
    with documents, those can be filed as well.
