Hello Ivan,

Thank you for your patience. We (I18N WG) discussed this issue in our teleconference today and I’m actioned with this reply. Basically, I’m writing a long response in Issue #354, which you should see shortly.

How can be best work with your WPUB to resolve this? I don’t think our recommendations have changed. Would a joint meeting help?

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.

Subject: the i18n issue in the WPUB WG

Addison, Richard,

this issue is still open:


As you can see, there are voices against this approach.

I got informal feedbacks from both of you that the direction in the issue (which is simply the writeup of where we got at TPAC) is not really what you would like, and you also told me that you would pick this up. When can we expect that to happen? I would love to be able to close the issue of directionality for this work, even if we all agree, I think, that it is far from being optimal, but we should be wary of a "perfect is the enemy of the good" effect...
