The formal answer appears on http://sil.org/iso639-3/codes.asp , which says:

# See also: ISO 639-2 Registration Authority — Library of Congress
# (which is the primary authority for Parts 1 and 2 of the standard and
# is the definitive source in the case of a discrepancy between that
# site and this).

Take two turkeys, one goose, four               John Cowan
cabbages, but no duck, and mix them             http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
together. After one taste, you'll duck          cowan at ccil.org
soup the rest of your life.
