Dear AHG members,

Following the conclusion of the SC29/WG3 meeting, I am pleased to announce that the AHG on Font Format have been reestablished with the following mandates (see SC29/WG3 N0074 for details):
AHG on Font Format
1. Review and discuss the text of Working Draft amendment of ISO/IEC 14496-22:2019_AMD2 to improve and update COLR v1 table / data structure descriptions.
2. Discuss clarifications and updates to other parts of the OFF specification, and submit AHG recommendations for proposed changes to address identified technical issues.
3. AHG may discuss technical issues using GitHub MPEGGroup/OpenFontFormat repo (https://github.com/MPEGGroup/OpenFontFormat)

Until 2nd (January 2021) SC29/WG3 (MPEG Systems) meeting

Room Size

Based on the contributions submitted to the WG meeting, the WG recommendation was to start a new amendment process for ISO/IEC 14496-22:2019 AMD2, that would give us an opportunity to update COLR table description and introduce other technical changes. I am very pleased to announce that the WG recognized our desire to use GitHub repo as a new venue for technical discussions - as you can see from the mandate description, this is now explicitly mentioned both in the mandates section and as our new communication channel. Please keep in mind that the GitHub repo is intended to be used for discussing technical issues only, the administrative matters of the AHG and the discussions related to AHG recommendations will be conducted on the AHG email list. I also would like to remind you that according to the ISO JTC1 rules, the discussions on the AHG forums should be limited to what is specifically authorized by the current mandates.

As a reminder, the membership in this AHG is open to public and is subject to the rules and principles outlined in the ISO Code of Conduct (https://www.iso.org/files/live/sites/isoorg/files/store/en/PUB100397.pdf) and Declaration for Participants in ISO Activities (https://www.iso.org/declaration-for-participants-in-iso-activities.html).

Thank you

P.S. The document SC29/WG3 N0074 that lists all the AHG established at the SC29/WG3 meeting is public, I will share the link to it on this list as soon as it's available. The text of the working draft amendment of ISO/IEC 14496-22:2019 will be made publicly available for review as soon as the document is ready.
