OpenI18N (before Li18nux)

“OpenI18N is a workgroup of the Free Standards Group with the goal to propose and coordinate any techniques, conventions, guidelines and activities within the open-source community. The scope of OpenI18N is focused on software/application portability and interoperability in the international context. This workgroup aims to provide a common open-source environment where applications can be executed and behave correctly worldwide, with different scripts, cultures and languages.” ICU is considered part of the OpenI18n project. It is also interesting to include Locale data inside this project, as their common repository will be used by many applications.
