CLDR Ticket #9895(accepted data)
Collation rules improvement for Tibetan
|Reported by:||roux.elie@…||Owned by:||markus|
I've been working on an improved set of collation rules for Tibetan on
the rules, tests and change log are on
and I have attached the rules and change log to this ticket.
They are based on the current CLDR rules made for Dzongkha, so I see no reason for these new ones not to work with Dzongkha, but I don't know this language. These rules have been tested by Esukhia (http://esukhia.org/) and reviewed by Åke Persson. They are based on the Bod rgya tshig mdzod chen mo dictionary, the dictionaries by the Dzongkha Development Commission, and the few papers on Tibetan collation (mainly "The Current Status of Sorting Order of Tibetan Dictionaries and Standardization" by Di Jiang).
These rules work fine with ICU 57.1, but don't with ICU 52, for an unknown reason, reported on http://bugs.icu-project.org/trac/ticket/12834 .
I'm not familiar with the review process but I'm available for any question, request, etc.
