Technical Summary This memo defines the procedure used to update the IANA Language Subtag Registry in conjunction with the publication of draft-ietf-ltru-4646bis, for use in forming tags for identifying languages. As an Internet-Draft, it also contained a complete replacement of the contents of the Registry to be used by IANA in updating it. This update adds several thousand language codes to the registry, which will allow these languages to be identified appropriately on the Internet. To prevent confusion, the actual registry contents will be removed before publication as an RFC. Working Group Summary The WG process for this document was mostly smooth and revolving around details. This document also reflects changes defined in draft-ietf-ltru-4646bis, which are disussed in a separate writeup. Document Quality The data contained in the document when it was an Internet Draft has been read and processed by several tools the implement parsing of the registry format and additional operations on this data. Personnel Martin J. Dürst is the Document Shepherd for this document. Alexey Melnikov is the Responsible Area Director.
