> 1. All changes to the language subtag registry are first made
> in a trial
> version of the registry, located at
> 2. Any time this beta file is changed, a notice is sent out to the

> request iana that
> 4a. the release is to proceed or
> 4b. the beta file is to be modified, which returns to Step 2.
