Name of contribution: Hyphenation Patterns in UTF-8
Author's name: Jonathan Kew, Mojca Miklavec, Arthur Reutenauer
Location on CTAN: language/hyph-utf8
Summary description: Hyphenation patterns have been converted into UTF-8 and 
 should serve as a replacement for the old patterns without any change in 
 functionality. The patterns should be considered upstream replacement 
 that will be used in TeX Live and other distrubutions instead of loding 
 the old files.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
Native UTF-8 engines such as XeTeX and LuaTeX have urged the need to 
provide hyphenation patterns in UTF-8 format.

These patterns should replace the old ones eventually.

This is the first upload to CTAN that will enable testing for 
TeX Live 2008 and is not yet set in stone. In particular we still want 
to change all the copyright notes in patterns, and add some 

SVN repository is available on http://www.tug.org/svn/texhyphen.
