Formally.  In fact it's supposed to be a "call for action".

Yes, and I hope for a decision until the end of February.
So far nobody claimed that 'Latn' for 'frr' is incorrect.

Not my problem (formally).  I pretend to trust that the new
registry works as specified, and from that POV I don't care
if 'frr' is added without the 'Latn' one second before it's
modified to show a Suppress-Script 'Latn'.  Or in the same

Kick the subtag registry into working is the idea.  Or else.

E.g. likely the other three Frisian language tags should also
get 'Latn'.  But I picked 'frr' instead of 'fy' intentionally
for the "or else" case.
