Dear List Members:

The newest draft (05) of draft-phillips-langtags, aka RFC 3066bis, was published today here:

There is an easier to read HTML version here:

This document's changes section details the specific alterations in this version of the document. There are not that many substantive changes in this version. The majority of the changes are related to specific comments we received during the last two rounds of review. Also substantial work on the prototype registry between Doug Ewell and the authors (Mark and I) has resulted in a few tweaks to the examples and some rewriting in sections 3.1 and 3.2 (whose order has been swapped). Please review the changes section for specifics.

We feel that this draft addresses all of the comments on this list from prior drafts (within the goals we set--which we enumerate now in the changes section). Absent the question of whether there should be a subtag registry at all, we feel that this document is very near its final form. Of course we welcome comments from the community, including vigorous debate where it is necessary, but sincerely hope that we can move forward with this draft with a new Last Call very soon.

Best Regards,

Addison Phillips and Mark Davis
