Access to the latest working snapshot of CLDR, and access to data collected for other platforms is available through the web. The SVN Tag can be used to get the contents of the release, as described below.
There are several ways to access the repository contents.
Simple SVN Browsing. For browsing a particular file for a particular version, or revision history of a particular file, use the Trac Browser. For example:
Simple SVN File Access. For downloading a particular file, use the SVN Browser. For example:
Advanced SVN Access. For more access to the source repository, you can use an SVN client to check out or export LDML files directory from the repository at http://unicode.org/repos/cldr/. For example:
At the top level of each SVN repository tree, there are a number of special folders, plus a number of platform folders. To see the structure, go to Trac Browser or SVN Browser. The special folders are listed below.
The common, dtd, and tools folders are in each release.
Note: Beginning with CLDR v21, the CLDR project will no longer publish POSIX-format locale sources as part of its distribution. The POSIX locale generation tools will continue to be made available as a part of the release. Developers who require POSIX compliant locales can generate them using these tools.
CLDR has historically included reference versions of POSIX-format locale source files that are generated using the default options for each supported locale. The reference versions of POSIX source information contain those data fields that are included in the POSIX specification.
Many operating system platforms provide additional extensions to the minimal POSIX required field set. Individual implementations may require addition of the platform-specific fields or a non-default character repertoire in order to provide full functionality on a given POSIX compliant operating system. As of the current release, the POSIX locale generation tools do not generate such platform-specific extensions, but they can be modified to support this.
Note: Beginning with CLDR v21, the CLDR project will no longer publish the conformance test files for CLDR data. These files were intended to be used to validate behavior for certain fields, but have proven to be difficult to maintain and of limited usefulness.
The 1.0 version of CLDR is described here for historical interest only. It was hosted on the OpenI18N site before the CLDR project moved to the Unicode Consortium.
