Be that as it may, there is nothing ietf-languages or Unicode can do
about it.  It is an internal matter of ISO 639-3/RA.  They have already
announced that the current change request cycle "will be delayed for a
minimum of two months," in all likelihood due to staffing turnover.

Last year's report (not announced as exceptionally delayed) was
published on January 20, so I personally would not expect this year's
report before mid-March.
