Hi folks,

I just looked at /usr/share/unicode/ucd/ and noticed the package is at version
10, a couple of versions back from current 12.1, issued earlier this year to
support changes for the new Japanese emperor Reiwa era:

and wonder whether other Unicode and UCD based packages are downloading,
maintaining, and using their own current copies, or still using outdated data.

I also noticed package unicode-cldr-emoji-annotation 30.0.3 appears to be a
couple of years out of date.

While on the Unicode site, I also noticed that CLDR 36 has just been released:

and ICU updated:

and the latter site left lower sidebar gives the ongoing Schedule for all
projects, which may be useful as it estimates the annual Unicode and semiannual
CLDR and ICU release dates:

  Unicode 12
  CLDR 35
  ICU 64(.1)

  New Japanese era:
  Unicode 12.1
  CLDR 35.1
  ICU 64.2

  CLDR 36
  ICU 65(.1)

  Unicode 13+bugs only
  CLDR 37
  ICU 66(.1)

  Unicode 13+features
  CLDR 38
  ICU 67(.1)

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
