About the authors

This manifesto was written by Pavel Radzivilovsky, Yakov Galka and Slava Novgorodov. It is a result of our experience and research of real-world Unicode issues and mistakes done by real-world programmers. Our goal here is to improve awareness of text issues and to inspire industry-wide changes to make Unicode-aware programming easier, ultimately improving the experience of users of those programs written by human engineers. Neither of us is involved in the Unicode consortium.

Special thanks to Glenn Linderman for providing information about Python, and to Markus Künne, Jelle Geerts, Lazy Rui and Jan Rüegg for reporting bugs and typos in this document.

Much of the text was inspired by discussions on StackOverflow initiated by Artyom Beilis, the author of Boost.Locale. Additional inspiration came from the development conventions at VisionMap and Michael Hartl’s tauday.org.
