Here is some other information for those interested in following more 
closely the work of the i18n Core WG.

If you want to contribute to a discussion about a particular issue in 
the tracker tool, you should include I18N-ISSUE-XXX in the subject of 
your email, where XXX represents the issue number.  All such emails will 
be detected by the tracker, which creates a list of related emails for 
each issue. See, for example, the list of related emails at 
http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/65. The tracker detects 
emails related to issues on the www-international and public-i18n-core 
mailing lists. (Tracker only sends notifications to public-i18n-core.)

We track various things using the following wiki pages:

The Review radar lists documents that currently need review for i18n 

Ongoing discussions can be found via the tracker tool (see below). 
Current issues are listed at:

The Resource Development Pipeline lists articles, tutorials, working 
drafts, etc that are in development:

The Tracker tool lists all actions and issues that the WG is tracking or 
has tracked:

The beginning of a product names tells you about what issues it groups 
	* .adhoc- are issues that the Working Group has been discussing with 
other WGs, but not as a result of a review.
	* .monitor- lists are discussions that the i18n WG has noticed on other 
lists and is tracking without official engagement
	* .prep- lists comments that have been raised during reviews but not 
yet discussed by the i18n WG or forwarded to the WG whose document was 
	* other lists are of issues that arose from a document review and were 
communicated to the WG concerned.

We hope to shortly extend the tracker to capture issue (and action) 
related emails on other lists related to the i18n Activity.

Hope that helps,

In recent years, traffic on this list has been sporadic, in part because the Internationalization Core Working Group [CoreWG] has been using various public and member lists to discuss and track issues and do its business. CoreWG is a public working group, except when we are commenting on other group's "Member Only" specifications, and we strive to do our work in a public, transparent manner.

In part this is designed to open discussion of issues raised in specifications and progress made by the Working Group to Interest Group members (that's you)--and to allow you a way to easily follow and contribute to discussions of open issues.
