    (With apologies for cross-posting to several e-lists of experts, but
    this matter is of some importance to Irish users.)

    Re: ISO 639-3 code element request formally submitted in January of last
    year, that is, a year ago this month.

    Title: Request for New Language Code Element in ISO 639-3, namely, code
    element: "pgl for Primitive Old Irish"
    Date of submission: 2010-1-21
    Tentatively approved and currently used for purpose stated.

    Names and e-mail addresses of official requesters:
    David Stifter (
    Dennis King (
    Caoimhín Ó Donnaíle (
    Elizabeth J. Pyatt (
    John Cowan (

    Question is, can formal _publication_ of code elements (updated list of
    all 2010 assignments in ISO 639-3) be expected any time soon?

    Note that the relevant SIL site—as Registration Authority appointed by
    ISO to do this ISO 639-3 work—has not been updated accordingly for a
    long time (and still displays the same apology for delays it put up in
    the middle of 2010).

    Le dea-mhéin,
