Dear ietf list members,

In reviewing the 2012 changes, the review committee suggested that instead of changing the name of code [ppr] Piru to Luhu, that last year's mistake of deprecating [lcq] Luhu and retaining and merging the two into [ppr] should be changed. Therefore, the ISO 639-3 RA is planning to re-activate code [lcq] Luhu and deprecate [ppr] Piru when the new changes are posted next week. The forms requesting the earlier change were written in such a way that the medium-sized language group was merged into a very small dying one, which was not intended by the requester. This problem was only discovered after the 2011 changes were posted.

I have checked with Doug Ewell and he feels BCP 47 should not have a problem with this.
