Please use the GitHub issue list to send feedback about this document.


Rather than just 'Watch' this repository, it is best to subscribe to the public-i18n-cjk mailing list. That list is notified once a day (in digest form) about not only changes to this repository, but also about other W3C Working Group issues related to the Hangul writing systems. (Please use github issues rather than the mailing list to send feedback.) Meeting minutes are also sent to public-i18n-cjk.

You can find a list of open issues, including those from W3C Working Groups, on the Layout Tracker page. (That link applies an hangul filter.)

For archived issues, predating github, see the disused issue tracker.
