Add specs for calendars

Reported by: mark Owned by: anybody
Component: unknown Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


We don't specify the calendars precisely in the spec or BCP47 data. I suggest adding a pointer for each calendar in in cldr/common/bcp47/calendar.xml to a reference that specifies the algorithm for that calendar

<type name="hebrew" description="Traditional Hebrew calendar"/>


<type name="hebrew" description="Traditional Hebrew calendar, as per Calendrical Calculations 3rd Edition, Nachum Dershowitz and Edward M. Reingold, pp 89+"/>

In the best case, we'd use a stable URL to a reference algorithm. But failing that, we can point to a work like Calendrical Calculations.

For Calendrical Calculations, the reference must be to the description, not the code (which is copyrighted).

For identification, we can point to the supplemental metadata calendarSystem for information.

Transfer the bug to others once the first few are done.
