Thank you for continuing to provide such a useful service, Luistxo and
Marije! Gura fada buan faoi rath sibh (Irish Gaelic, wishing you long life
and prosperity). I am passing your msg (below) to CELTIC-L, as well as to
some lists for people with a more general interest in International
Standards (both operational and under onstruction) to do with linguistic
and cultural issues, which include many members concerned with the future
of indigenous European languages, among others.

To other readers of this message: Luistxo Fernandez & Marije Manterola,
co-authors of the attached message, are Basque and live in the Basque
Country, a nation divided between two states.
