Hi, I joined the list in 2006 as a complete outsider and it works well as far as I can see; there are occasionally minor issues but so far no one's request for a subtag has been forgotten and decisions can be appealed to ietf!

(I'm sorry we don't have a bit more diversity on the list's more 'permanent' membership, but it's up to individuals to subscribe to the list, not to ietf-languages to recruit them, and in general it seems that the computing is dominated still by white males.  We do have several women permanently on the list)

I disagree.  The text in question describes an arrangement that
has worked well for a long time.
