    richard: basically this is a spec that defines an API for
    sharing links and text to arbitrary...
    ... and as soon as it says text :-)

    richard: look at section 1
    ... has a title and something that has a URL but potentially
    ... no language and direction; lang and dir of title/text can
    be different
    ... open to problems

Status of simple-ruby


      [26] https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/member-i18n-core/2020Apr/0014.html

    atsushi: short summary is that in final review for updated
    ... we think all suggestions are in final draft
    ... hope to proceed to PR and translations shortly

    richard: is florian planning to do the translations any time
    soon? (conflict with css)

    atsushi: need to talk to him

    <florian> (in another meeting, but noticed my name. Which
    translation are we talking about?)

    simple ruby

    <xfq> simple-ruby


      [27] https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-japanese/2020AprJun/0103.html

    richard: is there a url for the japanese version of the latest?

    <florian> confused. that's translated already, so I must have
    missed (or forgotten) something. Need to pay attention to my
    other meeting now, but please assume I forgot the thing you're
    waiting on me for, so an email would be appreciated

    <xfq> florian, see link above

Font fingerprinting proposals

    richard: concerned about the impact on minority scripts and m-l

    ng [32]https://github.com/tabatkins/proposal-local-font-access

      [30] https://github.com/w3cping/font-anti-fingerprinting
      [31] https://github.com/w3cping/font-fp-protection-browser-hinting
      [32] https://github.com/tabatkins/proposal-local-font-access

    richard: 3 proposals here
    ... one is really problematic, for example browsers only allow
    pre-installed in font-face and such, asserting safari currently
    does this
    ... we would want to suggest the opposite
    ... one from pete snyder
    ... one issue here is that people can fingerprint you from the
    fonts installed in your system
    ... and you might have diff fonts from other people
    ... so we allow you to set up a set of fonts in ui...
    ... so this is maybe worse?
    ... neither does what I thought was best approach; they all
    attempt to establish lists by looking at fonts out there
    ... and then centrally manage the lists of what's available
    ... perhaps safe way would be like cookie pop-up that says
    "this site will expose fonts on your system" and could be
    ... and fp people rely on many many fonts
    ... if it were super noisy that would make harder
    ... a bunch of stuff about locale being important; they are
    thinking about host operating evnrioment locale
    ... disconnect is that want to decide based on the language of
    text not the user
    ... 3rd from tab atkins
    ... can add markup to page that triggers UI for the user
    ... relies on good will of page author nor address large
    installed base of pages
    ... for every page, for text files, etc.
    ... worried about lists by locale.
    ... latin script has loads and loads of them
    ... if you're dealing with font such as the SIL fonts

    xfq: tab's proposal is origin based?
    ... maybe not every page of a website needs this? just for a
    site and user uses to configure this?

    addison: how prevalent is this a problem
    ... maybe warn after 10 local fonts in a single page?

    richard: a bad actor might track particular language family
    users by looking for a small list of specific fonts

    addison: how do we talk to them?

    <xfq> [33]https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4055

      [33] https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4055
