This is a tracking bug for Change: Glibc Unicode 7.0
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/Glibc_Unicode_7
We are updating Glibc Unicode data from Unicode 5.1 to Unicode 7.0 version. It took a long time, since there was not much documentation on how to update Unicode data and also there was the chance of loosing backward compatibility. Most of the issues are resolved now and patches are ready for inclusion. This update adds around 8000 supported characters in Glibc, and also corrects the Unicode data of many characters per the latest Unicode standard.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 22 Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable) is on 2015-02-24 .
At this point, all accepted Changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be so enabled at Change Completion deadline.
This bug should be set at least to the MODIFIED state to indicate that it achieved completeness. Status will be provided to FESCo right after the deadline. If, for any reasons, your Change is not in required state, let me know and we will try to find solution. Fedora 22 is going to be strictly time based release. For Changes you decide to cancel/move to the next release, please use the NEW status and set needinfo on me and it will be acted upon.
In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask Wrangler (jreznik). Thank you.
glibc-2.21-5.fc22 has Unicode 7.0.0 support.
Unicode 7.0.0 update
- Update __STDC_ISO_10646__ following Unicode 7.0.0 update.f22
This message is a reminder that Fedora 22 "Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline" is on 2015-03-31 .
All Accepted Changes has to be code complete and ready to be validated in the Beta release (optionally by Fedora QA). Required bug state at this point is ON_QA.
As for several System Wide Changes, Beta Freeze is a point of contingency plan, all incomplete Changes will be reported to FESCo for 2015-04-01 meeting. In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask Wrangler (jreznik).
We had nice i18n testing day. At least not found any bug related with this update. Moving to on QA
Hello Mike and Pravin, we'd like to include this change in the Fedora 22 Beta Release Notes.
Please take a look at the draft in the Doc Text field, and let me know if this text is sufficient, or if there's anything you'd like to add or change.

Doc Text: == Unicode 7.0 Support in Glibc == An update to Glibc locale data (character map and 'LC_CTYPE' information) in Fedora 22 enables support for Unicode 7.0. Previous Fedora releases supported Unicode 5.1. This change adds almost 8000 new characters, and also corrects the Unicode data for some characters per the latest Unicode standard. See the backward compatibility report (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pravins/glibc-i18n/master/report-utf8) for information about removed, changed and added characters.
I suggest to add “character width” like this:
“character map and 'LC_CTYPE' information” → “character map, character width, and 'LC_CTYPE' information”
Otherwise it looks OK to me.
Thanks. Character width added.
