When I put the seven language subtags on my Web page, I included a link 
to Håvard's announcement to this list.  I stripped those out of the 
messages I sent to Michael because I didn't want him to forward them to 
IANA where they might somehow find their way into the registry.

If you like, I can forward a link to the ISO 3166/MA announcement next 
week about the 3 new country codes.  This will avoid clogging the list, 
and give the curious an easy way to view the newsletter.  Or, if list 
members prefer, Harald can subscribe the list to the 3166 newsletter as 
you suggest.

I assume Michael will keep us posted on ISO 15924 changes, although I've 
got WatchThatPage on that too.  I know he wrote last October (L2/05-336) 
that "Future additions will be needed" to 15924.

The UNSD "standard" is the worst about this, at least as far as the 
macrogeographical codes are concerned.  There is no newsletter, nor 
announcements of any kind; they simply make changes to the posted code 
list.  We have little choice but to rely on WTP for this.
