subject: ICU API proposal: <topic>

Dear ICU team & users,

I would like to propose the following API for: ICU 63

Please provide feedback by: next Tuesday, 2018-mm-dd

Designated API reviewer: Markus

Ticket: https://unicode-org.atlassian.net/browse/ICU-<number>

<detailed API description with exact function signatures>

Example of detailed API

I would like to propose the following C++ Locale method for ICU 50:


* Set the value for a keyword.


* @param keywordName name of the keyword to be set. Case insensitive.

* @param keywordValue value of the keyword to be set. If 0-length or

* NULL, will result in the keyword being removed. No error is given if

* that keyword does not exist.

* @param status Returns any error information while performing this operation.


* @draft ICU 50


void setKeywordValue(const char* keywordName, const char* keywordValue, UErrorCode &status);
