Subject: Re: [office] TC Liaison with JTC1/SC34


thanks for the update and joining our Monday TC call.

I have added this topic as one of the first items on our agenda, 
immediately after the roll call, meeting minutes approval and a possible 
cancellation of the next but one TC meeting.

Best regards
