  I read in BCP47 (3.5) that "the Language Subtag Reviewer MUST indicate on the list whether the registration has been accepted, rejected, or extended", and he must do this "soon after the [...] review period has passed".

  I also read that, in case of approval, "the Language Subtag Reviewer MUST [...] explicitly accept the request and forward the form containing the record to be inserted or modified to <iana at>".

  Is this going to happen, or will we be left in the dark until ao1990 eventually shows up in the IANA registry?
