Dear Christoph and Calendar People

What is CLDR and the common i18n/112n repository?

The link suggests it has something to do with Unicode, but does not appear to reveal any information not quoted in the note, besides additional keys for day of week and hour of day.

The Unicode Consortium maintains a database for internationalization (“i18n”) and localization (“l12n”) of software. If I remember correctly, it was started by IBM, but is now used by most vendors for their translations and local adaptations. When something gets in there it’s very likely to be supported in major products.
