   Info Share

    atsushi: haven't done agenda+, but would like to share it with
    the group
    … checking issues in wpt
    … for the past few months
    … I wanted to send something to the member list, but not sure
    whether that's correct or not
    … on Chrome and Firefox run on Linux seems not have non-western
    … Edge on Windows or Safari on macOS seems to have complete set
    of international fonts including CJK
    … we need to check non-western? code points for tests
    … still not sure if this is correct or not

    r12a: did you say @@ don't have east Asian fonts?

    atsushi: the glyphs of some code points are rendered as tofu

    r12a: there is a CJK font I believe available for CJK fonts on
    … you have to look at the font directory in wpt

    <r12a> [19]https://r12a.github.io/scripts/fontlist/

      [19] https://r12a.github.io/scripts/fontlist/

    r12a: here's a list of system fonts for CJK

    r12a: you need to click on 'japanese' or 'chinese'

    atsushi: this is a test
    … should display a Han character, but it's not in this

    john: which calendar?

    xfq: could happen on update without choosing 'sending

    <Bert> I got 1 yesterday and 2 today.

    john: one addressed to me, and one to list
    … to list, joining instruction needs login

    r12a: interesting

   New, i18n calendar

    r12a: anybody see multiple emails yesterday, again 4 today

    xfq: did

    <xfq> atsushi: i believe that is the correct behavior

    <xfq> ... one email will be sent to the list and one email will
    be sent to the participant

    r12a: two should be ok, but four seems strange

    xfq: when update system will send notification, update without
    notification system will not send

    <David> I received 4 today and 2 yesterday.

    r12a: updated agenda several times, and invitation might be
    sent when agenda items were updated everytime
    … why two to the list?

    john: looks like, one to individual, one updated invitation to
    … original invitation yesterday

    r12a: three individual invitations yesterday
    … question is why second one today.

    john: could be due to removing email address temporary?

    r12a: supposed that to list is for archival purpose, and
    another to ones listed in database
    … another invitation will be sent to ones in individual
    invitation list
    … system might duplicate that to all?

    r12a: one to the list does never has an invitation link in its

    r12a: basically, if you go to the calendar system
    … you should be able to see list of teleconferences
    … I'm hoping this could solve timezone issue
    … I believe and hope, this automatically converts DST changes
    … you will see in appropriate time
    … things we can check here are that, I can correct if anything
    … for now, until January is registered, and will extend to
    March shortly

    john: bunch of timezones, and some highlighted ones
    … problem is what you will receive

    r12a: i18n in practice

    john: <on GMT>

    r12a: you should be able to see all upcoming teleconferences,
    but you still need to write email for agenda+

    actions for clarify and additional information
