    I see some differences

    - For Georgian, your new file contains only:
        Georgian (Mkhedruli);Geor;240;géorgien (mkhédrouli);Georgian;2004-05-18
    But the previous version also contained in one of the online tables:
        Georgian (Asomtavruli);Geoa;242;géorgien (assomtavrouli);Georgian;2004-01-05

    - Where is this line?:
        Syloti Nagri;Sylo;316;sylotî nâgrî;;2004-09-01

    Limbu has been adjusted to a more appropriate numeric code within South-Asian
    scripts (401 to 336).

    I also think that the removal of duplicate rows for English or French name
    aliases was a good decision (after all the aliases are already listed between
    parentheses). I also think that slpitting the line for the start end end codes
    of private scripts was a good idea.
