Maximal Starting Repertoire
For Generation Panels to start their work the Integration Panel has created the maximal set of code points for the root zone under the Procedure to Develop and Maintain Label Generation Rules (LGR) for the Root Zone in Respect to IDN Labels [PDF, 772 KB]. Maximal Starting Repertoire may be updated annually by the Integration Panel, based on feedback from the community and to accommodate relevant updates in the Unicode standard.
For sending feedback on the latest version of MSR, send email to IDNProgram@icann.org.
