Dear Doug,

You may want to know that there is a proposal to retire the code for Gugu Mini [ggm] for 2013 as it actually refers to a cluster of languages rather than a single language. You may want to delay implementing this subtag until the results of the 2013 review are known.

The changes for 2013 will be posted shortly. I received quite a few last minute requests and am close to finishing processing them. They should be available on our website on Friday afternoon.
